Hidden: Flash Fiction

Flash Fiction Story
Katherine Rochholz




I lay here, my eyes wide open. My life it flashes before my life. My childhood. My teen years, and the start of the path I went down. My adult years and that final act that finally lead to this position. I lay here and wonder what my life had been like if I hadn't made the choices I had. I lay here and feel, maybe for the first time in my existence, regret. So that is what regret feels like. Excitement. Release. A moment of relief. Those emotions for my life were the only ones I knew. Odd how now that my eyes are on display that I feel something I always should have all along. Remorse. Regret. Sadness. It is a novel feeling to finally feel... human. That part that was hidden so deep inside me. Now out in the open and on display as my eyes see the last faces they will ever see. They say eyes are the windows to the soul. That is why I used to wear sunglasses. Why I keep my eyes hidden from the world. So they won't see the darkness of my soul. See the things that I had seen. See the things I have done. See my true soul. So I hid my eyes. Maybe I did feel, but I was so hidden. So hidden that I even hid my eyes from myself. I couldn't look myself in the eyes. To look myself in the eyes would have reminded me of the sins I ran from. Remind me of the pain and death I caused. But today the glasses finally came off. Today my eyes will close forevermore, after they are bared for the world to see. As I finally pay for my sins. As they inject me with drugs to stop my heart my eyes wide open and on display, the world sees my soul and the fact I finally regret my choices. Regret my life. Regret I made my eyes a window to hell...

She closed her eyes.  “Powers that Be, I need you to tell what to do here.  You sent me back from death for a reason, what is that reason?  Is it to fight this war?  To die in this war? Goodness died last time to destroy Darkness and look, Darkness has returned.  Why go through all this when Darkness just comes back?”  She sighed.  She did not expect an answer.  “I do not want to have to think about this!”  She suddenly yelled out loud.  “Help me!  Help me please!  This world is chaos!  Darkness hounds my every move!  She is even in my blood!”

Excerpt Elemental Mazes

Excerpt Elemental Mazes Book 4 of the Katy Lily Series
All Rights Reserved



            Katy sat with Riley; they were sitting on the plane. The first maze wasn’t so bad a few choices made, a bit of power out of control. She feared perhaps their birth mother was right and she was going dark.
            Riley could practically hear her thoughts. “Nobody is pure light or dark until they make themselves that. Those who are dark gave up. They were told they were dark or cursed or they had no choice. They didn't fight. They didn't try. And that is what made them dark. They gave up. They invited darkness into their soul. There isn't just light and dark. You can't have one without the other. And no being is perfect. They just try to be a bit better than they were the day before and they hope for the best. They fight to be light. They fight to be good. And those people where are they? Those who fight? They are light.”

Sold My Soul Poem

Sold My Soul
All Rights Reserved



I used to have a voice
I used to have a say
I used to have a life
I sold it for fame
I sold it for money
I sold it for material
I now only speak circles
I now only blend in
I now only am artificial
I used to have a voice
I used to have a say
I used to have a life
