Flash Fiction for the Purposeful Practitioner: 2020: Week #03

It is the desire of this challenge to allow writers the opportunity to clear the cobwebs from a more tedious and involved project. Becoming a part of a new and growing writer’s community might be just what the doctor ordered to rejuvenate your writing juices.

It looked like liquid gold, but the contents of this particular pipette were more precious.
It had been a long day coming, years in fact, and a lot of money.
Finally, their dreams were going to be fulfilled, their prayers answered.
A single drop and eight eyes waited expectantly.
She was the first to smile, a solitary tear rolling down her cheek.
She looked up into eyes equally moist and wondrous.
‘Congratulations!’ The doctor said. ‘You are indeed pregnant.’

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.
