Flash Fiction Monday...

Just a little something to get you going for the week. This bit of Flash Fiction was inspired by this picture on Pinterest. Someone had added a comment to it, saying it needed a story. So I wrote a little one.

"Here we are," he said, as he looked out over the water-filled streets.

"You'll go with me a little farther," she asked as she gripped the man's hand a little tighter.
"No one will harm you while you are in the boat. Stick to the middle, where none can reach."
"What if I fall asleep and drift to the side?" she asked, her voice echoed off the empty buildings.
"Hmm." He thought about this a moment. The cat swished it's tail, as if it, too, awaited his response. "Perhaps I should go with you. Just a little further."

Have a good week, everyone!
