Three Words #15

One of my favorite writing games is something I call three words. I post three words and encourage you to write a flash fiction piece containing those three words. If you would like to challenge me – post three words for me and next week I will post a piece of flash fiction using your words. Enjoy!

Three Words

  • Sun
  • Ice
  • Hand

Flash Fiction

Using the three words: Chime, Rope, and Teapot (from last week)
Annaleys ran her hand throw the chimes as she walked along the balcony. The soft sound of cascading notes followed in her wake.

“Come.” Mylla called to her. “Sit.”

Annaleys sighed and came to sit across for her governess. Mylla smiled and picked up the teapot and poured some into Annaleys’ cup.

“Why so pensive?” Mylla asked.

Annaleys lifted the cup to her mouth and sipped at the warm liquid. Returning the cup to its saucer she fingered the thin rope tied around her wrist.

Mylla smiled at her knowingly. “He’ll come back. They say the war will be over any day.”
