[Flash Fiction] Collide

What happens when a beat-up old truck runs over a giant plastic heart?

***

“I’m so sorry! Are you okay?” He struggled with the red door of his truck, cursing its rusted hinges.

“I’m okay! But my heart’s broken.”

“Your what?” After resorting to a furious kick to open the door, he rushed to the front of his car where a blonde-haired girl was brushing some gravel off her jeans. She pointed to a red plastic heart, broken and trapped under the front wheels of his truck.

“How do you propose we fix my heart?”

***

What happens…is love.

Haven’t done a double prompt combo in some time, but these two photos just sparked a light bulb. Written for Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers, and for 100 Word Wednesday: Week 5
