I am so excited that Matt The Book Blogger is back with his Flash Fiction Foray Challenge!
For those of you who haven’t seen this challenge before, Matt chooses a song, fro which we are to gain inspiration, be it from the title, lyrics or music, and write a flash fiction piece of no more than 100 words.
(Though he is being a little lenient, if you go over he won’t bite!)
This week Matt has chosen Lana Del Ray ad Once Upon A Dream, from the recent Maleficent soundtrack.
I remember the original version, all sweetness and light… this has a haunting, almost disjointed quality about it….
And so to our Flash Fiction piece…
He watched from behind his paper… she ran about, larking with her friends. She looked exactly as he had imagined. Somehow he had to get nearer to her, let her know who he was. Getting up, he tried to saunter over towards her casually.
She was running towards him, looking behind her, and careered into him.
“Oh, sorry!” she said.
“No problem,” he replied, and smiled.
She disappeared back to her friends, but not before looking back at him.
There was something familiar about his face… she had seen him somewhere before… Or had she been dreaming again?
I hope you enjoyed it! (Matt I hope it was worth it!)
