Flash Ficton 55





               






     Opening the car door, a tender voice says, “climb in sweetie, you headed for Vegas”? He grunted as he bent down climbing into the back seat. The tune Crimson and Clover belched from the stereo. The long switch blade in his hand, he runs the blade over his thumb just itching to open her throat.

Flash Fiction Friday 55 is a story written in exactly 55 words. It's fun exciting and definitely a challenge making sure to use no more than fifty five words and no less of course and you must read the ones of your fellow writers. Let the G-Man know Gman's Place  if you write one  Why Gman's? Place because he's the Man who came up with this great Idea.

Hmmmm, are you reading the Green River Killer again? Spooky, just downright scary!!! And to think that I was stupid enough to hitch rides as a teenager, sheesh!!!

Thanks for visiting me! Make sure to leave your switchblade at home *giggle*

Now I have that tune stuck in my head...which is better than a knife to the throat. :)

Chilling...and yet I wonder what happens next?

Prayer Girl said...

After reading this 55 I say "Have mercy!"

I hate slasher films - can't even stand the sight of a needle. But having said that and since this is just fiction, I thought it was good. Thanks!
