55 Flash Fiction

Her heels clattered, creating an echo against the bright scarlet steps. The rounded wall arched away from her on the right as she descended into a monochrome hallway of unrelenting blood-red intensity. Reflective surfaces surrounded, even the ceiling. A faint memory of Dante’s Inferno occurred. Luckily, this was the perfect place to check it out.

I simply must see that library next time I am up there!
And while I am at it, read all about Dante and his little inferno.

Very nice. I always think of hell as this kind of slick and sterile place.

Very cool. It reminded me of these boots I was quite fond of as a little girl and walked through the front hallway to hear the clacking of the heels. I can still picture the outfit.
