Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers
Week of 07-24 through 07-30-2018
This week we have an image from Yarnspinnerr to work with.
‘It’s a map!’ Alan said excitedly.
‘What?’ Pete replied.
‘A treasure map. We’re going to be rich!’
‘X marks the spot dummy. Look, there’s four of them.’
‘I’m not the dummy, you are!’
‘It’s a discarded game of noughts and crosses you fool.’
‘That’s what they wanted you to think. The Os present trees in a forest, and once you find the three in a row, you start digging!’
‘You’re on your own mate. It’s a piece of rubbish.’
Alan wasn’t deterred and set off.
A week later, he pulled up beside Pete in a new ferrari.
‘Told you!’ he smirked.
‘I found four pots of dosh, and thought you’d like this,’
With that he tossed a set of car keys at him and squealing away yelled
‘You can have my old mini. ‘Bye!’
