Flash Fiction: Olives or Jelly

PHOTO PROMPT © Ronda Del Boccio for Rochelle’s Friday Fictioneers. Other stories featuring the prompt can be found here.

Another flash fiction set in my WIP story world. For NaNoWriMo 2019 I am working on a universe bible and flash fiction with the hope of eliminating mind clutter and generating ideas. In other words, the muse is fixated in the world.


The kitchen sink filled with dirty dishes. Oh, the shock. The God of Love, allergic to such chores beneath his station.

“At least hire a maid you lazy bastard.”

Nix clicked his jaw, one cockroach away from leaving.

Where is the bleach?

His stomach rambled begging for food as the sink filled with water. At least the bench looked clean, but Doni had a reputation of doing his ‘business’ anywhere, anytime. Best to scrub the bench with a brush, just in case.

Satisfied, Nix washed, rinsed and dried a plate. Olives or the jelly? Jelly.

“Stop, that’s not food.”

Damn love god! 


    1. I have done the 50k, but the quality was terrible and I couldn’t stand reading it when I read it months after. Missed details, killed the soul. I tried to slow down for Nanos after that but suffered burn out. My solution is to be a “rebel” count in hours. Much happier, I prefer near clean drafts and not stress if I need to plot etc.

      Good luck. Even if you get a chunk done, it’s worth it.

      Thanks I!

The Muse likes her ego stroked, leave a comment and she'll do the same... unless there is a glitch... or human error...
