Flash Fiction #46

I found this writing prompt online that I found interesting, and wanted to write about it.

You reject someone by saying "I'll go on a date with you the day hell freezes over." The next day, Satan appears in your room, shivering, and covered in snow.

Hope you enjoy!


It was a normal day just like any other day. I woke up, went to work to sit at my cubicle, and then went back home to prepare my dinner. I never thought to see a monster eating one of my apples I bought at the grocery store this week as it sat on my couch watching TV. I dropped my bag at the front foyer, slack-jawed.

"Who are you?! How did you get inside my apartment?" I rushed over to my living room after getting a frying pan from the kitchen and pointed it at the monster.

"What's that going to do?" It giggled at my weapon. "Never mind. I have come for one reason and one reason alone. I am the ruler from Hell and you made my home a frozen wasteland because of what you said."

"What on Earth on you talking about? I didn't do anything! I'm a normal person with no special ability. You got the wrong person!" I couldn't believe what I just heard. Satan? Hell? Tell me this is just a dream!

"To be frank, you are normal but some crazy woman perform some ritual for the deed to be done which makes you related to her. Let me remind you like so... Kukuku."

The monster waved his arm through the air, and I saw a 3D projection of myself turning down a friend. I heard those words as clear as day, "Fine! I'll go on a date with you the day hell freezes over!"

Are you serious?! Jenny?!

The monster leaned over and pushed my mouth back up with a finger. "Remember now?"

I nodded, bewildered. "Y-Yes. I'm really confused how Jenny could freeze Hell all over."

"The point is Hell will still be frozen until you go on a date with her. Reject her for all I care at the end, but I want my home back to normal!"

I fell onto my couch. "But she's not my type. We have nothing in common."

"Not my problem. If you don't call her right now, I'll follow you to your death until you do it." The monster loomed above me, laughing uncontrollably.

I pulled out my phone after scratching my hair, frustrated. "FINE! I'll call her and settle a date. As long as I don't have the devil following around me. It feels like an omen. Leave me alone, I won't back down as soon as I call her."

"I won't go back home until the date is over since my home will be super cold, so I'll help myself to these apples as I will thoroughly enjoy the interaction between humans." Satan reached over for another apple on the dining table.

I slapped myself in the face. What have I gotten myself into? Women are scary.

Writing Prompt: Have someone looking for something that is lost.

Hope you enjoy!


Maria ran up and down the street as she stared intensely for the bracelet that she had gotten as a gift. "Where is it? I can't believe I lost it!" She screamed at herself from within. She could feel the rush in the heart beat, and beads of sweat forming on her forehead and back of the neck.

"I'm sure it must be here somewhere. I checked at home, and at school. I couldn't find it anywhere. How can I be so careless?"

Maria cried when she realized the bracelet was lost, and wanted to cry even more while running around. "I can't cry. Tears won't find my bracelet."

When she saw a bracelet near an alleyway, she jumped at it with disappointment. "It's just some junk." She lowered her head at her bad luck, but she got up with renewed enthusiasm unwilling to show defeat.

After walking down the same route from her home to school for thirty minutes…

Maria jumped up and down, wrapping arms with her teammates as her softball team won the game. "Good job, everyone!"

Her teammates reciprocated the cheerfulness, and celebrated the come back from behind win. Maria noticed Sarah and Taylor coming towards her from the stands, and ran towards them. "Thank you both for coming out! It means a lot to me cheering for us in this type of game."

"No problem. It was really entertaining." Sarah hugged her younger sister, congratulating her.

"That diving catch that you made in the field in the ninth inning was so clutch! I wish I had my camera to take a photo. Good job, Maria." Taylor brushed her hair.

Maria froze for a split second as Taylor was making a mess of her hair. She was glad that she was hiding her face in Sarah's shoulder with that moment, as it started to turn red. She tipped her hat down to try to hide as much of her face as she stepp…

"I don't understand this problem at all!" Maria took her eraser and removed her answer to the math question in her notebook. There were already markings from previous attempts, and she scratched her hair in frustration. "I give up. I'm going to ask Sarah for help."

Maria took her textbook and notebook, and walked down the hallway to her older sister's bedroom. She yelled as she opened the door, "Sarah! Can you please help me with this problem? I've been stuck for 30 minutes already!"

Maria's mouth dropped open, and her eyes wide with shock as she witnessed Sarah and her boyfriend in a make-out session on the bed. Sarah noticed her younger sister at the doorway, and gently pushed her boyfriend away from her, frazzled.  "Maria, the least you can do is knock!"

Maria blushed at the sight and thought of her sister and her boyfriend kissing, and bowed. &qu…
