Secret

“That’s right; just a little closer,” he thought. “Two more feet… There!” He lunged when she was within his reach; however, when she turned around, there was a surprise. She wasn’t supposed to know that he was there. He had a bad feeling about this.

reach

 

Well, hello there. Yes, I am still alive and writing. I’m busy with college life. Oh boy! SO much fun…

Reach was the hot flash, which means I only had 50 words to write this. My flash comes creeping in at 45 words. This is the next sneaky installment of Flash in the Pan. Want to read what others have written? Click the link and enjoy!

Flash in the Pan: Cantina

“¡Hola! Welcome to La Buena Cantina. What can I get you to drink?”

“I’ll take a beer.”

“Sorry. Just sold the last one. Next shipment doesn’t come until tomorrow. Can I offer you something else?”

“Cuervo on the rocks.”

“Coming right up. So, why are you here?”

“Wife’s upset… again.”

“Oh. I completely understand.”

“Yea. Just here to relax and cool off.”

“Well, you’ve come to the right spot.”

Flash in the Pan: Tablecloth

It is ours, all ours. No longer did everyone have to fight about who was getting it because when momma’s will was finally found, all of the bickering stopped – briefly. When Mr. Lawyer – yes, that’s his name – read out the will in front of the family, he paused before he got to the part about… the tablecloth. It was hand-stitched by their great-great-great-grandmother; it only looks a few years old, but it’s almost 100 years old. When Mr. Lawyer read that it was going to be mine [Bubba Joe’s], I was filled with so much ecstasy.

Flash in the Pan: Sommelier

“So, what type of wine would you like?”

“Hmmm.. I don’t know. What type of wine do you like?”

“I don’t drink wine.”

“You don’t drink wine?! How can you be a sommelier and NOT drink wine??”

“I just don’t. Any way, what wine would you like?”

“I want a dry, oaken wine with a spice note.”

“Is that all, sir?”

“No. Instead, I want a sweet, heady wine with-”

“John! Just pick a wine!!”

Flash in the Pan: Crystal

Hailey whined, “Dad, it’s so close to Minneapolis; why can’t we just move there anyway?”

Chris, her father, replied, “Because the house prices in Minneapolis are just too high; however, I’m positive that you will love Crystal. Plus, we’re just a short drive from Minneapolis and all of its malls.”

Flash in the Pan: Coffee

Business was running slow in the coffee shop. So, while he wasn’t doing anything, he decided to do something. He made a quincunx with coffee beans, all because he was bored.
