[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.

  1. What a surprisingly sweet perspective! It could have totally gone another way 😉 I’m so happy that you’re challenging yourself and using multiple challenges in your writing!! I’ve tried it a couple times, but I often end up writing two instead of one 😉 Thank you for a cheerful tale ❤

      • I would send iy to you immediately – when the inspiration has time to settle – I feel I am in a whirlwind these days. Yes coffee/tea/whatever with you sounds an amazing deal. Like having you in my cosy corners. Thank you for always bringing sunshine into my days!
