FFF# 200 The Perfectionist

In a 100 words no more or less, here is my 200th Flasher Fiction Friday. Look to this link to read other great Flasher Fiction posts from great writers. Flasher Fiction Friday

The Perfectionist

Lying naked among her music, her keyboard, her favorite red wine, and roses. Staria begins to feel failure. Her record sales are dropping, and her fans are leaving. Unable to find a new direction, Staria picks up her gun and takes in a last long puff of her cigarette. Knowing she is no longer the perfectionist she is and can be. She knows this must end her failure. Staria picks up the gun, and aims it at her favorite keyboard. Firing it she ends its misery. Now she must pick up, start new, and be who she’s meant to be.

(Whohoo!!! My 200th Flash!!)

I really feel for Staria and hope her mood lifts soon. Great flash Aurora.

Excellently written flash. I was thinking the worst when she picked up the gun though
