55 Friday Flash Fiction #1


‘I sit and watch the phone. It is the ring-tone; it radiates my teeth so I watch for flashing. When it does, I do not answer because—’
           ‘I'm sorry but do I know you?’
           ‘It is your phone that rings, when I'm alone and you want—’
           ‘I think you better—’
           ‘This will stop you.’

Think you can write a story in 55 words? Go visit the G-man to see those who did.

  4. I can't believe how many wrong numbers I get when it's such a simple task to store the number they actually wanted.

  5. That's exactly the reason I try to avoid phones. Someone thinks you should communicate.

    By the way this phone conversation is being recorded for quality purposes.

Welcome and thanks for dropping in. I'll pop by yours by and by.

This blog was inspired by First 50 words where you freewrite from a single word prompt. I use random words or images to create flash fiction in formats ranging from twitter postcards to short short stories.
