The Wedding Bouquet #flashfiction

Sheโ€™d told all her friends where to stand so that when she threw her wedding bouquet, Tracey could catch it and be the next to marry. Sheโ€™d told them to get the men to stand in line as well.

Pressing a small button concealed under her wedding dress, the flowers scatted and mixed with blood, flames and bone.
