Flash Fiction Friday – Darkness
One of the first things I had published was a Flash Fiction piece, so I’ve decided to try my hand at some fun Flash Fiction prompts, and instead of keeping the results to myself, I’ll be sharing what I do with all of you! 🙂
This week’s prompt is… Write a story in which something transforms into something else.
If you guys want to join in, feel free! I’d love to read your stories and/or thoughts in the comments.

Darkness blinded me. I knew he should be in this building. They’d taken him, but I refused to give up hope. He wouldn’t for me.
Water dripped somewhere in the musky, black hallway, providing the only sound aside from my footsteps. The men had come this way, and a faint energy trail drew me deeper, confirming my hopes that Daniel was still alive.
The connection between us kept me going. Kept me strong.
My foot smacked against something. I froze, not knowing if they could have heard me, even though I couldn’t hear them. When I convinced myself they hadn’t heard, I walked again, slow and steady.
A light swept the hallway then, and I dove out of the way, knowing what that could be. Daniel had warned me of the guards.
Loud snuffling sounded down the hall where the light had been, and a loud howl followed. Muscle ripped and loud snapping bones sickened me. A blast wave of energy rippled out from the corridor, doubling me over from the force.
Now I knew why Daniel had meant by them not being human. Whoever… whatever was down there had just shape-shifted.
