And that, I'm afraid to say, is the end of the Flood. We have restored the defences, piled up the sandbags and stemmed the flow at the end of another issue.
We hope you enjoyed all of these wonderful stores. They, as with previous issues, will stay up here so you can continue to enjoy them in a more leisurely way; to read, enjoy, comment and share.
FlashFlood is building up to be quite an amazing flash resource, with nearly 500 stories now on our site. Thank you to all the writers who have made this, and every previous issue such a success.
And thank you, of course, to all the editors who do such an amazing job behind the scenes!
By wrapping this issue, we're also wrapping up National Flash-Fiction Day 2013. Hope you had a good day and enjoyed some wonderful flash!
We will be back with another issue, later in the year. So, get writing now and we'll look forward to reading your new stories.
Until then, happy flashing!
Editor, FlashFlood and Director, National Flash-Fiction Day.
