November 9: Flash Fiction Challenge

This is my contribution to Charli’s 99 word (no more, no less) weekly flash fiction.

‘It’s so DULL,’ Greta said. ‘I want something with more zing, something more dramatic.’
‘Sorry Doll, it doesn’t work that way.’
‘ But I want to stand out, I want to be remembered!’
‘Look Babe, that’s the way it is. Company cut backs and all that. We already have the final frame.’
‘Stuff your final frame! This is my story, my life!’
‘That’s Hollywood for you, Sweetcheeks. At least they read the screenplay.’
‘Can’t we punctuate it with a question mark?’
‘Great idea, Toots. That’ll leave it open for a sequel.’
‘ Oh and it’s Greta by the way, surname Garbo.’

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth for jelly babies or fruit pastilles. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    Love it! Great take on the prompt with a sassy and classy flash.

  2. She certainly got her wish although perhaps not so many know her now. I guess almost everyone fades into obscurity over time. Love the ending.
