Friday Flash 55...


At 4:30 AM, like so many nights before, she was "out" with girlfriends. In the past if she did come home, she smelled of Marlboro Reds, booze, and Brut. Startled by a noise in the garage, he checked. There she was, passed out....Car running.
Smiling, he closed the garage door, and went to bed!
.
If you or anyone you know has written a Friday Flash 55, please come tell the G-Man.
I will visit, read, enjoy, comment, then Book! So from the most gracious host from coast to coast, have a Wonderful Week-End.
Peace...!!!

Oooo, that's a wicked little 55-word fable. Galen does the Dark Side.:)

Mojo said...

Oh man... talk about cold! That's, like, Antarctic! {{Shiverrrr}}

I put a warning label on this one... could be a bit too much for those of finer sensibilities. Some things ya just can't make "pretty".

Like a semi-staged suicide... jeez!

Very nice ending. Great 55.

I played this week although my 55 is more like a promotion. I went to see a local Independent movie and am pumped about it now.

Well have a nice weekend G.

Polt said...

Hmmm, well, that's an interesting 55. :) After being away for some time, and after a personal appeal from the G-Man himself, I'm back again.

Happy 55 Fiction Fridays!!!

that'll show her now won't it? LOL! Great 55 as always Galen. I sure hope you all are staying warm and dry, I have been watching the news and heard mention of the frigid temps up there. I think Tennessee is working it's way into a competition with the Northern states because we have been cold as well.

Have a great weekend!

Devotee said...

Eeeeevil!

But in a good way, of course.

I'm late this week, but I did two to make up for it.

laughingwolf said...

hey g-man...

since i'm involved in another challenge, where i need to post 12k words for the year, i decided to kill 2 with one, ie. add 55/day, weekdays, which will bring me past the requirements... 55x5=275[x4=1100/month] ;)

beginning tomorrow, i'll try to post my 55/day...

because i was given a bonus of 1000 words for signing up early, to date i have 1243 words... the 243 is posted, and as my bit in jason's flash fiction challenge [click on j evans in my pals+ list]

hope you, and others, partake in jason's next one :)

tsduff said...

ewwww - I'd say you have a bit of latent resentment hanging around somewheres... Where's that happy go lucky G Man! Is it because testosterone is building up for the big upcoming Superbowl or what? Come on, spill.

Redheels said...

He went to bed and died from the carbon monoxide coming into the house from the car. The police found him the next morning when the police came with a warrant for his arrest for that late library book he never turned in.

Love your 55 story.
