Flash Fiction: Moonskin

The cold night breeze drifted over Rebecca’s bare skin as she returned to her humanskin from her coyotebody. Owls hooted at the full moon and bats swooped overhead. She heard her lover racing through the underbrush. Rebecca smiled.

Moureen appeared out of the foliage in her fox form. Her eyes glinted yellow in the moonlight. Growing up and out with the ease of long practice, Moureen became a human redhead clad in only a saucy smile. She caressed Rebecca’s cheek then kissed her softly. “I found you.”

Every month, they played the same game despite the risks. No ancient feud between their clans could stop them. They had to play it through to the end.

Coyotes yowled in the distance.

Flash Fiction: Futile.

Miranda composed herself at the bottom of the sink hole before she raised her pick ax and began her ascent up the limestone walls. The grenade in her cargo pants’ pocket bounced against her calf.

Making handholds for herself, she told herself to not be afraid. Her crew was sure to have turned the tide of the fight. The space pirates that hit the mining colony were no match for the lug heads and thugs that she had tended to as a medic. She told herself that it was true. They had sacrificed too much for this terraformed hunk of rock to lose it all now.

The pirates hadn’t breached the colony walls. They couldn’t be allowed too.

A shadow fell across her when she was just a yard from the hole’s rim. Low chuckles echoed down.

Miranda didn’t look up as she reached for her pocket. In less than a minute, she’d get the last laugh.

Flash Fiction: Dim

The mortal loved the ocean. Each time that she dived beneath the waves, she embraced the waters of the mother with a smile. Her dark hair and white dress swirled around as she swam above in the sun dappled sea.

Hidden in the dim depths, Moria swam behind the mortal. She gripped the coral handle of her trident tighter. This dark task weighed heavier than the shield on her back. Aye, she had sworn her loyalty to the father but the son tested that bond with yet another twisted command. Kidnap the pearl diver in white.

Duty kept Moria tracking the mortal woman as she surfaced and descended again. Honor forced her to sheath her trident.

Flash Fiction: Crash.

When Rose woke up under a shroud of stars entombed in drought dry grass, the first thing she noticed was the blood dripping down her face. The second was that she floated above her body. She reached for herself, still and bloody, to pull herself back inside. That was her body, that was her home. Even as she felt herself sucked back in, Rose felt her body heal itself.

She stood up in the moonlight filtered through a saguaro’s arms before looking back. Her crumpled Honda jutted from the arroyo’s sandy bank.

A flash streaked from black sky to the purple horizon.

Rose smiled.

The sacrifice was accepted.
