50 Word Flash Fiction

Fated Decisions

by Lady Jane



"Deidre, please put Miss Thomas in Room 3."
Bella makes the trek down the dimly lit hallway to Room 3, sighs deeply, then opens the door. After tugging at the pen on her clipboard clumsily, she utters...
"Miss Thomas, welcome to Planned Parenthood. Do you understand your options?"
"Yes, ma'am."


Work Flash Fiction - 50 words writing prompt entry
Writing Prompt
It's Sunday night here in the US, and that means back to work tomorrow for many. Write a 50 word flash fiction story that deals with the topic of work. Any genre is acceptable.


Image is my son, Keston. He recently graduated as Senior Class President and is well on his way to doing great things.

I work in the healthcare field and have seen many a travesty. I envision one of my docs in this scenario...I guess it made this write easy.

However, knowing this child of mine almost didn't make it to earth due to spousal abuse made the idea of -work- for those in the field of medicine priceless to me. They are heroes and that is why I chose to write about this, my chosen field of work, nursing. I've worked all over. Meaning I've worked with oncologists, endocrinologists, orthopedists, dermatologists, and family practice physicians during my tenure in medicine. To them, and to me, the work is daunting at times, but can also be truly fulfilling.

Thanks for reading.
