Flash Fiction Challenge: Four Random Items

This week’s challenge involved picking four out of ten possible random items and using them in your story. I used “a leather mask”, “a child’s toy”, “an animal’s skull”, and “a road sign” which mixed together to produce “Make-Believe”.

Side-note: I’m going to be sitting out the next challenge in order to focus on some other projects and also start getting Half-Mad Rantings: Summer 2013 edited and cobbled together for publishing around the time of the Autumnal Equinox (don’t forget that HMR: Spring 2013 is still available for sale!). So, “Make-Believe” and the other eleven stories of this set will be up for another week or two and then be taken down when the next Flash Fiction Challenge goes up.

But, onto the story!

  Edit: This story has been removed – look for it collected with more of my work in ebook format! 🙂

    Well written and very well crafted story. The prompts were integral to the tale you created, without them the story couldn’t be told. That is a fantastic integration. Absolutely enthralling. So often it seems, flash fiction stories do not remember that they must have a beginning, a middle, and most importantly, and end. You ended this the only way it could/should have been ended — with another beginning. Marvelous work, HMR dude.
