I’m thrilled to have won the 99fiction.net May 2015 competition with my (very) short flash fiction story Blocked.
We grew up on the same block. Skipped to school hand in hand. Blood sisters swearing to be there for each other forever.
Then your lucky break became my heartbreak. You soared while I trod water and turned from BFF to celebrity stalker.
Calls went to voicemail then number unavailable. No forwarding address. When you blocked me on all social media I got the message.
Luckily I’d pressed print on that photo you tweeted. The one with a stack of mail on the table, the address clearly legible when I enlarged it.
See you soon.
