My Mina, My Doom (flash fiction?)

In the last dark hour, there is only love. I can feel it in the blood that courses through my veins. It is a warm, pulsating flow not my own, for I am but an empty husk without her and the richness of her gift. There is no need to take it from her, for she gives it willingly, knowing at any moment I could bring her to the very brink of death and let her slip. The danger, the fear, the sheer ecstasy of that moment comes and passes, for I let her live, leaving her enough blood to remain the beautiful woman she is. I do not wish to make her a monster like me, for it is her angelic qualities, the warmth of her flesh, the unaltered smile, that calls me to return again and again. Perhaps she is my Mina, for in that I know she is both my heart as it was and my doom as it shall be.

  1. I like the question mark after the flash fiction. It could be a piece complete as it is, or it could be the spark for a whole new story. Glad to see you writing.

    1. Thank you. I’m not sure what this is, but it could very well be the start of a larger piece. All I had was the first sentence in my head so I just started writing. I do miss that. My head is full of unfinished novels it seems…Thanks for reading and taking the time to comment 🙂

    1. Thank you! Glad you enjoyed this short piece. Who knows, maybe it will end up being a prologue to something else? You never can tell with all the ideas that swirl through my head, lol. All I knew was I had to get this little bit down on paper while it was fresh.


      1. You’re welcome!

        I totally know the feeling of wanting to get a story idea all written down.

        I watched the movie “The Others” a couple of years ago and I always thought it would be interesting to write a story from the “others” perspective. It was an idea I just let float around in my head until last month when I finally decided to give it a try. I changed a few details and eliminated some characters, but I’m so happy with how it came out. And YES! I actually finished it in only ten chapters! 😆 I posted it on my cosistories blog as “A Reverse Angle”.
