~The only bench in the park.

Finish the story begins withShe lived a life that some would describe as being on edge.

But she didn’t fear Death- in fact, she knew her. She had met Death during Halloween.

Death was sitting on the only bench in the park, biting a coin and smiling to herself.


Death snapped her head up and looked at her. “Hi.” was Death`s monotone reply.

She took a seat beside Death as Death offered her a coin.

“That`s going to kill you.”

“From the day humans are born, they`ve been dying.” Death replied.

“You`re not afraid of death?”

“Why should you be? Is the bird afraid of first flight? It doesn’t know what awaits it- if it’d fall or fly or die- yet it does it because it’s in its nature. Just as death is in yours.”

“Yea, but I don`t wanna shorten my life.”

“Don`t shorten it, just make sure you to live, okay? Only you can write your adventure, cause no one else is going to do it for you.”

Urghhh, I want to expand this so badly cause it`s too short! Flash fictions can hurt so bad sometimes >.< 11/2/2015
