When Blue means Blue

Flash Fiction Source

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.



There were choices to be made every day.  Simple ones like what to eat for breakfast or what to wear, coffee with sugar or sucrose.  Simple decisions.

Then came the big choice day.  The future makers showed me a selection of colours, each one representing where I would go in my life from then on.

There was not a door/window selection that didn’t appeal.  I liked the calm, cool lime green, the vibrant, fluorescent orange or the ripe, deep purple.

I liked the look of the blue.  There was a door and a window that showed shades of blue. The red around it just solidified my decision.

Little did I know that choosing blue, meant from that day forward I would be blue.  The red frame was a con making the blue seem brighter.

  1. Ouch! Not a fair thing to have someone choose without knowing what could happen.sad that blue actually means that the main charscter will spend her life depressed there has to be someway out of this loop?

      1. Yeah, I agree they can feel like that. And it’s hard to find help at times a person is depressed if you don’t already have a good psychiatrist or people who understand what you’re going through. Sometimes, it’s like the awful feeling of tiredness and horrible mood won’t go away. Yes, I know about depression 😦 sorry you were in a bad mood. But you still did a great job writing 🙂
