Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers – No Name Street


I was lost. The sign at the top of the street said “No Name Street”. My map had no such street name.

The houses looked like so many I had already walked past. Ahead of me, the street turned a curve, and I wondered what lay beyond it.

As I walked past the first house, a voice asked if I was lost?

I couldn’t see from where the voice came so kept going.

“I wouldn’t go down there,” said another faceless voice.

“No telling where you’ll end up in No Name Street,” announced a voice seemingly in my ear.

I stopped in the middle of the street and looked about. I was feeling uneasy, voices with no bodies were unnerving.

“Who are you?” I asked the street.

“Voices of warning,” came the reply.

“I’m lost,” I pleaded.

“Go back then, only the brave step further.”

I felt a small hand slip into mine,  a small boy was beside me. “Come on mister,” he said, “come with me before you get yourself into real trouble.”
