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 and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    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.
