Freedom – flash fiction 

The scent of springtime was in the air as she drove along the winding coastal road with the top of the convertible down. It was hard to believe that less than a day before, everything had been so very different. 

She didn’t scare easily. But the chill that seeped into the marrow of her bones each time she looked into those icy eyes made her shiver. 

“You made all of this the way it is, didn’t you?” She glared as if each word could pierce an arrow into his nonexistent heart. 

“What would you say if I told you I did?” He was testing her as always. 

“I’d know that what I believed all along was true. You’re not even human.” 

“I’m better than you mediocre people,” he spat. 

“Not this time.” She nodded to the figure in the corner, who leapt into action. 

Now they were free.

  1. Very intriguing. However, I am a bit confused on the flow of the scene. Is she driving after the figure in the corner leapt into action against this other creature? If so, is the figure with her? (It seems she’s alone). Sorry, lots of questions, but I think this is a very good start for something.
