Goodbye Big Brother FFfAW Week of 06-24-2015

This post is written for Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers. This is a flash fiction challenge (stories in 100-175 words or less) and each story should have a beginning, a middle, and an end. This  week’s photo prompt is provided by Sonya O. My story follows the picture prompt.


So there you are big brother.

The one I always despised. Hell “hated” is a more descriptive adjective.

Wonder what you looked like when you died. Wrinkled like me?

Mommy always gave you everything while I had to work my buns off to just get by.

That’s why I never talked to you for the last fifty years.

Fifty frigging years Albert! You made my life hell buddy just thinking about your success.

Oh, and my failure now that I think about it.

You did one thing right big guy. You married a wonderful women. Too bad she left you for me. Hope that didn’t have anything to do with your nasty exit from this world.

Just thought we would say goodbye brother.


  1. To live with so much hatred must eat up one internally, not to mention the possible guilt further down the line.


  2. It sounds to me like not much love was lost when his older brother died. It must be hell living with that much hatred. I like the twist you took with your story Danny – lots of emotion!


Tell me your thoughts!
