FFF #22 Hello

Tuesday means prompt night from.The Book Blogger, Matt, for a piece of flash fictionnot more than 100 words, based on a song prompt of his choice.
This week, is the new Adele song, ‘Hello’.
Check out the prompt here.


A small word, isn’t it? But can be filled with so many possibilities.

The sign of new beginnings, a smile, a shake of hand, a chance that a new relationship may blossom.

And that one word started a chain of events so long, that I almost forget it was that one word that started it.


An even shorter word…

3 letters that can gut you.

And gut me, they did. I don’t know what I did, but watching you with your bag in your hand, walking down the path, after uttering that word… I felt my world explode….

    A sad piece. A scenario repeated countless times in countless lives. I particularly loved what you said about the possibilities inherent in Hello, though. Spot on!

    I really enjoyed the way you used the emotions subtly evoked by these words, and the gentle use of the ellipses really added to the piece.
    Best, Matt
