I'm having a bit of a flash fiction frenzy at the moment ... and it is so much fun!
The picture not only made me smile but it got me thinking about my story for last week's Visual Dare. The story below is the prequel to The Odd Couple.
Casually I look up from my filing to ask Helen her birthday plans, even though I already know the office gossip.
Timid as a mole, she blushes behind her long fringe and thick spectacles.
“Just a meal with a few friends, you can come if you wish, it’s just that Howard is bringing Clare and I …”
The sentence is left to hang in the air like a silky ribbon and I know how it ends.
“Curiosity and all that, I’d love to come,” I purr, all the while shaping my claws into perfect points.
Here's a link to the second part of the story if you haven't already read it - The Odd Couple.
As for what else happens in the story - we'll see where the prompts lead me...
