February 14: Flash Fiction Challenge – A Painted Rose.


February 14, 2019, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story about valentines. It can be Valentine’s Day, the exchange, love for another, romance, or friendship. Have a heart and go where the prompt leads!

She felt the emotion of her gift rise in her chest and again found herself wiping away another tear.

He wanted her to remember their first Valentine’s Day with something she’d never been given before.

She was lost for words at the time, gazing at it, trying to understand the enormity of the gift.

It was she thought odd, but also uplifting, that at her age such a special gift would come her way.
