Flash fiction is the fiction literature style that has extremely short plot. Flash fiction stories consist of the beginning, body and end, which can be no more than 2 pages. I wrote the story, the name of which is “The world she lives in”.

Oh! How beautiful it is here! – said Marta. She found herself sitting on the doorstep of the strange house. The house was build of the yellow oak roots. It had the pyramid form with lots of colored windows. On the top of the pyramid there was a round glass platform with a table and four chairs. The big white with red cake, teapot and two cups were on the table. Marta was sitting on the doorstep and singing a wonderful song. She was watching how the sun was going down the forest. But it was a very strange forest: the trees were very high and more than six meters width. They were covered by huge leaves, which had purple, blue, green, red, violet and rosy color. The sky over this forest was colored in light green with soft blue clouds. Those clouds were differently shaped, they looked like little houses with flowers in front of them. Suddenly, Marta stopped singing. She saw a little girl in the white dress sitting on the cloud. The girl was smiling and waving to Marta. Marta smiled in return, stood up and went to the girl up to the clouds. At once she heard the voice, it was everywhere and became louder and louder every second. Marta turned white and started to cry. In a minute everything became black. She understood that she is lying in the bed and her mother wakes her up. “My dear mother, - smiled Marta, - I was there again. I saw my house of the oak roots and my friend was sitting on the cloud. Mom, I am so happy there!”. “Really? Tell me about this place,” - replied mother, wiping the tears and smiling to her little blind daughter.

The story "Sonny's Blues" by James Baldwin is one of the greatest American short stories. I do think that everyone should always think about the problem he/she raises in his/her stories. Stories force readers to think about this problem, discuss it and make their own thoughts and feelings towards it. Differences in people’s thoughts or unethical author’s vision of the problem may create dissonance in society. James Baldwin wrote the “Sonny’s Blues” story with such a passion and feelings, that the problem became the top discussed at that time. It is necessary to raise such problems because when the problem is understood, it is half-solved.
