Flash Fiction #200 – Blinded by the Light

Romance filled the air, yet not for him.

Amid countless male fireflies, he adjusted his display to catch a female’s attention.

After seven tiring days, a bioluminescent beauty signals interest.

More suitors, blinded by her resplendence, vie for her affections, but she wants him.

He chases down her dimming glow.

However, her embrace is anything but tender.

She splits him open and sucks him dry,

taking all that he has to offer.

Plump, satisfied, and set for life,

she flies away,

leaving him an empty shell of his former self.
