All Rights Reserved ©


This book is a collection of short stories and flash fiction that I've written. They are all based on prompts that I've gotten from multiple places and have been extremely useful in getting over writer's block. I hope you enjoy them and have as much fun reading them as I did while writing them. ©Copyright. 2022 Íris Rós Hope All Rights Reserved

The warmth of the blood that was slithering down and dripping off my arm comforted me in a way I found surprising. I was usually not one for revenge or any form of vengeance or violence, but this one anomaly felt pretty damn good.

It wasn’t like he didn’t deserve it. He more than did. The bastard had been using my mother as a punching bag for years before tonight. So when I heard her cry out once again, I couldn’t take it anymore. I had to put an end to it.

For way too long had I stood by and done nothing when he hit, beat, and abused her. But not anymore. Today I finally did something about it.

For today was the day.

The day that he would never lay hands on her again.

dtjenkins5: A good read with all the complexities of relationships. The twists and turns of the plot add a special dimension.

FiU: Zum Dahinschmelzen. Tolle Geschichte. Hoffe auf Band 2 über die besten Freunde.Bitte mehr Zeit für die Rechtschreibung aufwenden.

Erika: Yooo where’s the second part?!

nizaly: Muy bonita historia y divertida.gracias

Annie Kay: The dirt bag behavior with Marcus and erica was annoying and this story was amazing. The relationship development wasn't over time but more over rushed at the end and erica should have lost her relationship with Marcus when he started to be kind to his wife. It was a good story.

2jlynn: Cannot imagine all that went on in Annalisa had going on in her life the past 2 years... then to top it off with her dad stepping in taking care of everything her an Eagle would need yet expecting nothing in return. Yes, it's a book, but nothing can stop the dreaming.

2jlynn: How can people do such horrible things... especially to the innocent? My heart hurts thinking of what is reality for some individuals. My life may not be "storybook", but comparatively speaking, there is nothing to complain about.
