Flash Fiction Friday 55 - "The Light"

Laura couldn't forsee the new bond forming between her best friend and ex-husband.
Why did she encourage this union?

Celia enjoyed her outings with Ben and was only being a confidant. Full of encouragement and understanding, as she herself was going through a divorce.

Ben longed for companionship and Celia was his beckon of light.

If you have your own 55 ...go and follow the light to Mr. Know-It-All and enlighten the G-Man.
Share your story with other weary travelers.

Flash Fiction Friday - "Miserable"

She was a miserable, anti-social woman.
She was plagued with ailments of every sort.
She turned people off with her mighter than thou attitude.
Being a vegan and an atheist only added to her negative charm.
Now, that she was on the verge of being evicted,
she turned to the only ones who loved her...
If you have a miserable or any other type of tale to tell go check in with the G-Man first at Mr. Know-It-All and then spread the word.

Flash Fiction Friday 55 - "The End"

The sun was setting and the time was quickly ticking away...
My vacation was coming to an end!
Lazy days of Summer are no more.
It's back to the hustle and hitting the floor.
At least I did get to settle my mind...
Play cards and drink some wine.
Happy to enjoy my free time!
If you have your own 55 give a shout out to the G-Man at Mr. Know-It-All and share in the fun!

Flash Fiction Friday 55 - "Popping Pills"

Maury listened to the conversation
and did not like where it was heading.
His son and daughter seemed oblivious
to him sitting there in his old leather chair.
I'll have him for three months and you take him for
three...the rest he can go visit those Florida friends.
Maury shrugged and started popping pills...
If you have your own 55 pop on over to see the G-Man at Mr. Know-It-All and visit other 55'ers
while you still can...
