My Name’s Annie – Friday Fictioneer’s

If you’re reading this my name’s Annie.

If you’re reading this then I guess the worst has already happened.

Maybe not. Maybe it’s 50 years from now and you’re in the woods with a metal detector and by some miracle the little clasp on this plastic bound kiddie journal hasn’t rotted off yet.

Most likely you’re mom and dad, in the middle of my room, surrounded by pink bunnies and blue gnomes … I always said I was too old for those.

If you’re reading this, my name’s Annie and I’m a good kid … I killed that boy because I had to.

Letters from inside my head

  1. *Gasp* terrifying! Brilliantly done and dropping it before the prompt picture meant my head hadn’t registered it as a story. Shocking how that one placement changed how I read it.

  2. This is one of those flash fictions that leave you racing around for an explanation. The diary has been found, else we would not be reading this. Annie is either on the run or already dead from what we don’t know. But it is clear her plight is not understood.
    Great story.

  3. Yes, yes, yes… the repetition works so well here.
    I was sure the ending was going to be that she had killed herself. Great twist.

Why not tell me what you think ...
