flash-fiction-2nd-novemberHer Daddy had promised a special pet for her 16th birthday, but this was what she got, a boring field trip to some out of town shack store called ‘The Flying Monkey’.
No cute marmoset, no Justin Bieber capuchin, not even a stuffed chimp.
Some birthday this was. Her friends had all been given cars for their 16th, but her Daddy couldn’t afford one. A pet monkey had seemed a cool alternative.
Passing her a pair of overalls, the burbling of an engine made her turn.
The Flying Monkey was a plane and her present was a flying lesson!

  2. It sure does work. Wonderful flash and totally unexpected. Guess her friends are going to be the jealous ones now.

    Love where you took this one! The Flying Monkey is a plane; that’s great! Good build up of the unexpected, too.
