Hi guys. This is my first flash fiction challenge. The prompt was ‘Helping someone’ link is here. I hope you like it. Please tell me what you think.
“Get out” she seethes, her fists clenched at her sides “Just go”
I turn and look at her. “Tess” I say my eyes searching her frame for a reaction. “I was just trying to help”.
Nothing. I can see the slow heaving of her shoulders. “Please Tess, listen”.
“No, you listen, from the minute you stepped into it, my life has been a complete wreck, your ‘help’ today could have gotten us all killed. ‘killed’ Do you know what that means?”
“Yes” I answer. Guilt starts to choke me.
“Then get out.”
I turn and walk out the door.
