Flash Fiction Friday Devon Rhodes

Welcome to today's Flash Fiction Friday with Devon Rhodes. For more FFF click here.

The gun pressed to the back of Devon's head didn't worry her as much as the bomb set to explode in three minutes.

Mitch was bigger than her by a hundred pounds, meaner than a rabid dog and dumber than a stump. The seconds ticked by, but he didn't budge his hold on her. She counted down the time as fear pumped through her.

“Tell me the code,” Mitch said.

Devon nodded, Mitch didn’t have time to escape anyways. Mitch removed his hand.

"Let me go and I'll give it to you."

Mitch pushed her away and she stumbled towards the door. Would she make it?

I hope you enjoyed my Flash. Devon was a great sport and had no idea what I was going to write. Did she escape??? I don't know, we'll have to leave that for another episode. In the meanwhile check out her website and her books.

A Ring And A Promise is part of the His Hero Anthology.

Careers in military service are never easy on relationships—even less so when both lovers are in different branches...and both are men.

Naval Academy graduation now under their belts, Cary Barrientos knows the reality of the upcoming separation from his roommate of the past four years. Owen is more to him than just his best friend—he is the one person Cary can see spending his life with.

Owen Marsh knew that when he became Cary’s lover, the day would come when he would have to walk away. Now that day has come, and he’s having a hard time convincing himself that it’s just sex between them. Even with DADT repealed, there is no way a Marine and a Navy flier can be together. He’s just being realistic not expecting more.

When Cary switches their Academy rings, hoping Owen won’t notice, he makes a vow—he will do whatever he has to do, including believing enough for the both of them, to make their unlikely relationship stand the test of time. But when his Marine is called up for duty overseas, can a piece of jewellery and a promise be enough to get them through?

Im extremely impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself? Either way keep up the excellent quality writing, it is rare to see a great blog like this one these days..

Great FFF, I could feel the tension and fear escalate. time ticking down freaks me out for some reason, so this especially upped the thrill level.
