Flash Fiction: Reflection

A short story – in a flash – one to keep you guessing to the end …

I’m delighted to have my flash fiction piece, Reflection, published in the US on Flash Fiction Magazine.

No partner. No kids. And the Christmas party only hours away.

Heaven.

The antique dressing table, rescued from my grandmother’s house, beckons. As an only child, I spent much of my childhood in the guest bedroom where it lived. Over the years, it has come to know all of my secrets.

I run my fingers along the redwood admiring the shiny brass trimmings. The oval mirror, set centre-stage, tilts backwards and forwards while the smaller ovals each side allow a full reflection. Sitting, I fit the ornate key into the lock and turn, removing the pots and potions from the drawers to begin my transformation.

Tonight is a special night.

  2. This is fabulous, Susan! I’m impressed with the way you scent the scene and context, and with the twist at the end. Brilliant.
