For weeks, she watched the gray skies, the power-line full of birds, and the two apartment building across the road. Once in a while, she’d quietly shed a few tears but mostly, she sat and thought. She thought about how she should be starving or dying from thirst by now but strangely, she felt neither of those things, nor did she want to escape from her captivity. For all she knew, nobody was going to rescue her. Not the FBI, not her father. For all they know, she was dead. Slowly, the words formed at her lips. “I’ll help you.”

(100 words)

Each week, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields-Addicted to Purple hosts Friday Fictioneers where we’re challenged to write a piece of flash fiction in 100 words, more or less, based on the picture above.

  1. This story reminds me of the movie I saw recently… “Room”. If you haven’t seen it… it is well worth it. While it is fiction… it could very well be taken from what has actually taken place… and could be taking place somewhere right now.

    Your story is gripping… and real!
