The Numbered

Inspiration

The Numbered was written for a Flash Fiction competition in the space of 55 hours. The rules were:

  • A max. of 500 words.

  • Your story must include, word for word, ALL of the following SIX descriptions (describing whatever you want):

  • SHINY, SILVER

  • COLD AND GREASY

  • SCRATCHED AND WEATHER-WORN

  • SWEET AND PUNGENT

  • INK-STAINED

  • SHRILL, PIERCING

  • One of these six descriptions MUST appear in the first sentence of your story. (The rest, wherever you like.)
