50 Word Stories: Shades of Night

“There are many shades of night, child, multiple blacks.”

“Black is black, and it scares me.”

The old woman smiled.

“When the cold comes, we treasure the moments before sleep wrapped in blankets, our eyes closing, bodies warming, don’t we?”


“As I said, there are many shades of night.”

    1. No worries, Tiffany. Flash fiction is a story usually under 1000 words that is complete from beginning to end. Not an outtake. It gets twisted and worked around, but that’s the general gist. There’s a lot of sites specialise in flash fiction but I just like writing short stuff because it’s a relaxing break from novel work.
      I hope that helps.
