Day Two 100 Word Flash Fiction – Speed

SpeedFor just one moment it is perfect.
Man, machine in harmony,
watching the reflection of the light counting down off my windshield.
Red… Amber and then the lights hold…
Green! Go! Go! Go!
First gear just off the cam, snatch to second.
Barely a wheel spin.
Feel the engine ignore the counter.
Hit third together we lung forward.
Redline slam the clutch quick change to fourth.
Fifth follows both hands on the wheel.
A risked glance shows us neck and neck.
A sly grin, hit the nos and the night lights blur.
Winning or losing don’t matter now.
Just speed…

Day One 100 Word Flash Fiction – I Am Wolf

I Am WolfI guard the forest,
it is my realm.
By bow, sword, tooth and claw,
I draw the line against the dark.
I swore this to my Lady who dwells in the castle yonder.
Beyond my reach in the land of man.
That she would not feel dread while I walk here.
I don’t break promises.
I protect the pack.
Man, Beast, Nosferatu or Spirit will learn new borders,
for I walk all the worlds.
The day, night and the shadow that lay between,
all belong to me.
For I am the Wolf.
And those who do evil will fear me.
