#StoryIn12 - December

#StoryIn12Every day,  the #StoryIn12 flash fiction meme on twitter challenges writers to write a “complete” story in exactly 12 words, that includes the prompt word for that day.

#StoryIn12 is the creation of tMolly (aka @mollysdailykiss) and Wriggly Kitty (aka @Wriggly_Kitty)

Here are mine for this month:
  • Winter – Snuggled in front of the fire, sheltered from the chill of winter.
  • Bump – Sometimes, things going bump in the night can be fun, not scary.
  • Blue – Some days blue is more of an emotional state than a colour.
  • Method – His method was simple and direct, but it achieved the desired results.
  • Ocean – Although there was an ocean between them, somehow they would be together.
  • Forecast – The weekend forecast was atrocious. Another good reason to stay in bed.
  • Length – In her opinion, width was a much more important measurement than length.
  • Inspiration – I was lacking inspiration so I almost gave this prompt a miss.
  • Party – The party season was in full swing. What could possibly go wrong?
  • Lights – There was no avoiding the question any longer: “Lights on or off?”
  • Method – His method was simple and direct, but it achieved the desired results.
  • Hardship – His life often seemed like a sequence of one hardship after another.
  • Double – It was becoming increasingly difficult to hide his double life from others.
  • Deep – The wine and deep philosophical conversation flowed into the morning’s small hours.
  • Border – His life was lived perpetually on the border between light and dark.
  • Treatment – She always knew the most effective treatment for his aches and strains.
  • Mind – It is impossible to hide from the demons of your own mind.
  • Medal – There would be no medal ceremony. Survival was the only possible reward.
  • Tree – They lay beneath the tree on top of the hill, counting stars.
  • Gift – The gift of learning can, unfortunately, sometimes unlock the curse of knowing.
  • Stolen – Those brief stolen moments together would create memories that lasted a lifetime.
  • Expression – The expression he wore told of the utter weariness of his soul.
  • Rung – She hadn’t rung him that night. She never rang him any more.
  • Cat – The cat sat contentedly atop the pile of discarded Christmas wrapping paper.
  • Limit – At the limit of his endurance, he chose to accept the inevitable.
  • Vain – In the end, their attempts to be together would be in vain.
  • Matter – Did it matter anymore? He decided that, on balance, it did not.
