Prompt Tuesday #39

Every Tuesday I post a writing prompt and my response. It gives me a chance to exercise my writing muscles outside of my WIP, and hopefully inspire you to write. So enjoy my flash fiction piece and post your own in the comments!

A cut on the hand


Cari looked down at the red stripe on her palm. She traced her fingers along the partially healed wound. When did this happen? She wondered. I don't remember cutting myself.

"Torin was teaching you to use a knife to defend yourself." Urie said to her from across their small camp fire.

"Torin?" Cari asked. A pained look darkened Urie's eyes.

"He's a... good friend."

"I don't remember," Cari admitted.

"I know," Urie responded. "That is why you are here. To remember."
