Flash Fiction for the Purposeful Practitioner: 2021: Week #16

Roger Shipp is our host for FFftPP. You can find out more here

Flash Fiction for the Purposeful Practitioner is a weekly writing challenge designed for both the flash fiction newbie and the more experienced writer. 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.

He was late and she’d kill him.
Traffic was horrendous, yet he’d allowed plenty of time.
Just his luck to get caught behind a dawdler, and there was no place for him to safely pass.
He looked at his watch. Ten minutes had stretched to twenty, then thirty.
He was a dead man walking, or maybe driving. She would never forgive him for this.
He eventually made the turn and pulled up outside, just as another car screeched to a standstill about a foot from his front bumper.
His bride hit the gravel running from the back seat, then stopped dead in her tracks.
Then they both burst out laughing and walked into the little chapel arm in arm.

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.
