Flash Fiction Friday "Hiding"

Wow it is that time again and it seems to have come around so fast, Flash Fiction Friday is upon us. It is one of my favorite days, the day a group of awesome friends and authors show their talent by writing a short story based on one particular picture. It must be 100 words, no more no less. It may seem quick and easy but let me assure you it is not. To try and express your emotions about something with just 100 words is quite the challenge, but a great joy to learn from too.



Serena looked at the picture before her as a tear fell from her eye. Remembering the day she had created the work of Art brought back many memories. During those days she had been that woman hiding her true self, peaking at the world through her fingers. She smiled as she stroked the diamond necklace she now wore. Given as a token of love from her lover, Serena proudly wore the collar as a symbol of devotion to her Dom. The day he had bought her photograph had changed her life; bringing her love and the freedom to be herself.

Today's picture was quite the challenge for me but I hope I was able to convey my feelings about it and the subject I chose. Please leave me a comment to let me know what you think.  
Also please check out my fellow Flashers , by clicking on the name and show them some love as well. I wish you all a wonderful Friday and a Fabulous weekend.

So many people hide their true self from the world, to protect their hearts from the pain of ridicule and rejection. I think all of us long for a connection to someone who will accept all of us, with our flaws and imperfections. Sherry, you have captured all those emotions quite nicely. Very well done.

I feel this post, I really do. We don't all blossom and those that do, at their own pace. Our fears chackle us but once on the other side, we really are free. Loved it, Sherry, loved it. Been there, been that woman.:) xo

This is a wonderful journey to self recognition and it really moved me.

Sherry, excellent work with this Flash!

Hiding behind a mask is something we all do. Some because of fear of ridicule and some because of pain. I think the challenge in life is the ability to be able to see past the mask and into the real person and when you can find someone you can truly be yourself with, it's more than just magical, it's extraordinary - very well done.
