Black Coffee

Flash fiction is something that Bhavya and I both love writing. To write a story in 55 words is fun, and challenging at the same time. We’re trying to write 55 Fiction for Week 4 of the Ultimate Blog Challenge in July. We’re doing posts on the same theme each day (like A to Z in April). The theme she chose for Day 22 is BLACK.



“Black, with two lumps of sugar.โ€

She was waitressing to pay her fees to medical school.

She was running the night shift alone that night.

He had known. He had raped her.

Years later, she tricked him into a relationship.

New name, new identity.

“Black, with two lumps of ricin.โ€

That was how they parted.

Author’s Note: Ricin is one of the strongest poisons known.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. Easy death…isn’t it? I would prefer to punish him with a painful life instead. He should crave for death…such should be the punishment for rapists ๐Ÿ™‚
