Something Broke – Flash Fiction

Something broke. That’s about the only way to describe it. About thirty years ago some underlying logic in our reality simply failed. Maybe we broke physics with the latest in bigger and brighter colliders, maybe god just died of loneliness. Whatever the reason, the immutable rules of cause and effect, the division between what the real and the imaginary, all seemed to begin to fail.

The dead don’t always stay dead anymore, you have to convince them. As for children, well let’s just say that there is nothing more terrifying than a child with an overactive imagination.

  1. Scary – and thought-provoking. A great start for a novel. 🙂

  2. Thanks, my flash stuff tends to originate in little kernels of short stories that never got any love. They get a quick polish then get kicked out of my ‘in-progress’ folder.
