Okay, so I used one or two elements from each of the five prompts to create a five-sentence flash fiction piece of under 200 words. (The words in bold indicate what element I've used from each prompt)
With every painful throb of my heart, more blood spills from the gash in my thigh. It runs down my leg; a bright red stain pooling on the concrete beneath me. Graham crawls out from the shelter of the bridge, seemingly oblivious to the spray of rain that drenches him within seconds. He paws through the rubble, his fingers searching desperately. Through a haze of pain I see him point his arm toward the sky, pull the trigger of the flare gun, and watch the dazzling sparks soar across the sky.
I wasn't entirely sure if a flare gun would work when used in the rain (since I've never actually used one myself!), so I Googled it, and someone seemed to think that yes, it would work. Anyway, if not, let's pretend it's a special flare gun that can be used in the rain!
I'm number 12 on the list :-)
