Flash Fiction Challenge: Find Your Favorite Opening Line

So, this week’s challenge was to pick an opening line from the previous week’s challenge and write a story from there. I picked a line offered up by one “Julia H.”: “I flicked the lighter open and watched the flame dance in the wind.” I wrote one piece based on that which was a short vignette centered around a goth club that I used to frequent, but didn’t feel that it popped. In the wee hours of this morning, the seeds of the following short bubbled up in my mind as I drifted down through hypnagogia while trying to get back to sleep, but it’s a bit more splatterpunk than some of my recent stuff. So, y’know, brain-bleach may be required. Enjoy!

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