FFfAW – Fear of Heights

Looking down petrifies me. I feel a knot rising from my stomach, sticking inside my throat. Oh my God, I’m going to retch. Fear seizes me. My head is spinning and I’m gasping for breath as the color slowly drains from my face. I look at Robert and he understands immediately I am descending into a full blown panic attack. Grabbing the railing for my dear life, my PTSD clicks in and I fall to the floor of the bridge with unrestrained sobbing.



My patient husband picks me up and holds me close while my mind spins through a chaotic mess of frightening images.



Breathe in…. one… two… three… hold….hold…. release.


With my husband still holding me, he calmly tells me, “Honey, we are on the other side now.” My breathing returns to normal. I release a huge sigh of relief.


“But, we need to go back for our car.”

(150)

Thank you to Etol Bagam for our photo prompt this week.

Welcome !


20th


Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers


Week of 07-01 thru 07-07-2015


PLEASE READ

Several people have contacted me regarding the continuation of stories and how this is not only difficult to keep up with, especially when more than a few people are doing it, but it also discourages new people from following and reading our stories and blogs. So, I am asking participants to stop doing serial (continuation) stories. If you are writing a serial story, please try and wrap it up by the end of this month but definitely by the end of the week ending July 8.

As Rochelle explains in her challenge, Friday Fictioneers, stories should have a beginning, a middle, and an end in (100-175) words or less. Thank you for your understanding.
