Matthew Quinn Martin just keeps churning them out.
The Ricochet appears at The Flash Fiction Offensive.
You may not like the narrator of the story but you sure as hell can't really back the woman that fell for whatever charms he may or may not have had in the first place, either.

Meantime, over at Thrillers, Killers 'N' Chillers, Alan Griffiths burns (no pun intended) the site up with Toast. Flesh and red-hot grilling plates do not mix well.
Alan is a prodigy and is, in my opinion, one of the future stars of this genre.
And Karen Mossman tells us Secrets. If this happened to you, you'd probably be unable to cope, too, just like the narrator.
