Flash Fiction Online is a website with very short stories, updated every month. These are reviews for the new stories in their January 2016issue.
The first story is "The Retelling of Jeremiah" by Kelly Sandoval. -+- Jeremiah's bookstore is failing and his daughter wants him to sell it. He does but exits in most unusual way. Touching.
The second story is "America, America" by Okafor Emmanuel Tochukwu. -+- A young man tells his mother that he loves another man. She does not take it well. Neither does his dead father. Okay.
The third story is "Live Forever" by Anton Rose. -+- Jamie is a young man whose friend, Jackie, has died. He and his other friend, Smitty, do not go to the memorial service, but have one of their own. Okay.
By the time you read this, the February issue might be up, but the January Flash Fiction Online should still be available. Look for it as a back issue or read any older issue. Check them out and make a donation at their website.
