hyde-hall-light100-word Flash Fiction

This week’s story is inspired by this photograph provided by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields.

The sounds of silk and taffeta swirled around the room in a frenzy of color. The rhythms of Amadeus’ minuet in A major carried her to to a glorious place where no one existed but the two of them. He smiled his most dashing smile and his blue eyes glittered to outshine the stars. The archduke’s hand heated the curve of her back as her slippers slid across the marble floor.

Vic! Victoria! Are you okay?”

Her eyelids fluttered. A great chandelier and stark white ceiling medallions filled her vision.

“Wha… what happened?”

“Cell phone! Quick! Someone call an ambulance.”

    1. I think we have several possibilities:
      1. She’s from the 1700s; time traveled to the future
      2. She’s from the present; had a flashback to the past
      3. The chandelier fell on her; she passed out and had a bad dream/memory
      My original intention was #2. I see now that I’ve left it pretty wide open. It’ll be interesting to see if anyone has any other theories.
      Thanks for reading and taking a moment to comment. Most appreciated.

    1. No worries. It’s funny how you get an idea in your head and the 100-word story seems clear until someone makes a comment that blows your thinking out of the water. I like it! Make you think harder when you write. 🙂 Thanks for visiting.

  1. I love the way you’ve let us fill in the blanks on this. The possibilities are seemingly endless. Good piece.

  2. While I do like #2, there is a part of me that likes #1 time traveling forward. Cell phone? Ambulance?
    There is more to this than 100 words. 100 words skilfully chosen. Enjoyed.

I love to hear from my readers! Don't be shy.
