Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers: The Green Diamond


“Would you like to see my secret lab?” Connor smiled. He was having the best night of his life – not only did he score a date with a beautiful girl on the street, it turned out they shared a lot of common interests.

Kayla giggled, “You know I want to.”

A mere three minutes later, the elevator landed on the hundredth floor. Connor led Kayla through a maze before arriving at a metal door with a keypad in the center. Connor entered a four-digit key with his thumb. Click. Connor turned to Kayla, “Welcome to my secret lab.”

The room was dark and on all sides, metal shelves lined the walls. Kayla was awestruck. Now I know. “Are those your creations?”

Connor nodded, “Those are failures.” He grabbed Kayla’s hand and led her deeper into the lab. “Wait until you see this.” That’s it, Kayla thought, almost there. Connor led Kayla around the corner, “Behold, the green diamond.”

“I want it.” Kayla gasped.

“What?” Connor laughed, “You can’t have that.”

“Tell that to my gun.”

  2. I was thinking something was up. He suddenly meet the perfect girl and shows her his life’s work. I think he’ll have to be more careful. I was just waiting for her to pull out her gun. Nice write.
