Flash Fiction – Crystal Clear
First off, I want to apologize for the lack of post lately. I have been super busy with family emergency and sick on top of that. I hope that this is the first of many more Flash Fiction post in a row for the year.
This week’s Flash Fiction phrase came to me when I was watching some movie on Sci-Fi and a woman was holding a see through phone like item. Hope you enjoy this week’s post.
Have a great week.
Let your imagination soar when you read.

Had to be seeing things. Yep. No other explanation. Red and yellow Popsicle did not float. Nor did blue ball caps.
Katie pinched her arm. Wasn’t dreaming. She froze in the middle of the crosswalk, closed her eyes and opened them. The small headed ballcap still made its way away from the candy store.
“Miss, you okay?”
Katie turned her head towards the rich timber voice. She wasn’t okay. Tall, broad shoulder, blond hair man did not need to know she was losing her mind.
“You saw it to?”
“Huh?” Wait. He saw it. Shit.
“Red and yellow popsicles are my favorite flavor.”
Katie knew her eyes were bulging, but it didn’t matter considering the sexy-ass man had taken her arm and led her towards the metal bench a door from the candy store. He gave her a little push on her shoulder.
“Take a seat before you fall down.”
She shook her head and glanced back down the sidewalk. No blue cap in sight. She had to have been seeing things. Didn’t explain why the man squeezing in next to her saw it to.
“It’s a chameleon. Untrained, or uncaring one.”
“Chameleon. Sure you’ve heard of them.”
Heard of them? “You mean the small lizard looking like animal that changes colors?”
“Not that. Kind. Why would you think . . .”
Katie did not like the deep frown marring the stranger’s face. She disliked the shake of his head even more.
“Shit. What is going on?” The man jumped to his feet, grabbing her arm again, yanking her onto her feet. “Come on. We have to get to Razu.”
Who did this man think he was? Why had she let him escort her out of the crosswalk? She did not know him. He was not taking her nowhere. Specially, not to another person she had no clue about.
“Listen. We have - -“
“We don’t have to do anything.” Katie huffed and stepped around him, making her way down the sidewalk to her finical company.
