Three Words #26

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

  • Hot Cocoa
  • Fire
  • Storm

Flash Fiction

Using the three words: Mistletoe, Kiss, and Grandma (from last week)

I poked my head around the corner. The hallway was dark and empty. Slowly I tip-toed to the edge of the stairs. A soft glow was coming from the floor below. I peeked through the bars of the railing and gasped.

There below me was my very own Grandma, standing under the mistletoe with Santa. The Santa! And they were kissing.

"Grandpa is never going to believe this."


"He is up their watching us, isn't he?" Stan said with a smile.

Mary nodded. "You think we should tell him?"

"Next year," Stan replied.


  1. Winter, a poem

    It's so cold outside I want hot cocoa 
    I'm just glad we don't have snow 
    but when we do

    And it storms
    I want to be inside, by the fireplace 
    with family
    sharing stories, cookies, and hot cocoa. 

    -with love, Fida (:
