Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers: Connor


He has been watching Connor for some time, spying on him behind the trees with his military-grade binoculars. Connor is special and anyone who’d spend two minutes with the boy would know and would be right to fear him. 

Connor is an average twelve-year-old boy with a special gift he does not even know he possesses. All he knows is strange things tend to happen around him and he can’t control it which makes him frustrated and when he’s frustrated, he lashes out and at times, his lashing-out can turn the entire world upside down.

He was Connor’s victim. He was the survivor of one of Connor’s tantrums when he was a child. His wife did not survive. He was arrested for the alleged murder of his wife and went to prison for a crime he did not commit. Now he is back with one mission – to contain his son, Connor, to help him control his gift, to help him adapt, and to provide him with the love he has been neglected all these years.
