‘Happy Valentine’s Day’ – Our Monthly Flash Fiction Post

Welcome to ‘Happy Valentine’s Day,’ the sixth in the Amrah Publishing House’s series of flash fiction. Not just any flash fiction, but flash fiction free for the reading, right here on our website. Something romantic and under a hundred words – who could say no to that?

Happy Valentine’s Day

“Why do you think Valentine’s Day is in February?”

I glared at him. Words couldn’t express the venom I put into that glare.

“Seriously. It’s all a marketing stunt by retailers.”

I wrapped my arms around myself. One of his favourite rants, but I’d hoped this year, now that we were together—

“But I did it for you.”

My glare lightened. My jaw fell open. He held out the most beautiful bouquet of yellow roses.

You know what they say? Roses are cliché. But I knew they weren’t, for Roger, because he’d never bought anyone them before.

So I kissed him.

About The Amrah Publishing House

We are a small publishing venture that specializes in light-hearted literature, both fiction and non-fiction. We don't see literature as divided between escapism and realism, but rather aim to bring the benefits of both to our readers. Our stories will connect with your lived experience, while lifting you out of the daily grind as you read. Our most recent release is an illustrated storybook about Edmonton's history - a story that is more than the individual story of one family, but rather a story that connects us to a city we all share. This little booklet is by sisters Harma-Mae Smit (writer) and Paulina Van Vliet (illustrator) about a house in #yeg and how the world changes around it. This is a great book to teach your children about urban sprawl! And it's a great way for city-dwellers to connect more deeply with the city in which they live. We've previously published short pieces of fiction as ebooks as well. Keep on top of our latest offerings by following us at amrahpublishinghouse.com.
