Friday 4/24/09 - "THE BOX - Part III"






Every Friday, compose a short story of 55 words - no more, no less. if you want to join in the fun and games and give it a try...post your story and report to the boss G-Man!


THE BOX - Part III

Here she is, his marionette, trying desperately to pull her own string, reach out for that pink phone.

Suddenly it rings.
Fear courses through - dark and quick. She reaches, snatches it up.

Hears, "Remember me? We met at the coffee shop last week. Wanna try one of the meetings, twelve steps I told you about?"


Prayer Girl

Note: The following was LAST WEEK'S "55 Flash Fiction Friday":

"THE BOX - Continued"

Her life had collapsed and restricted her more with each passing year.

The occasional yes when she really meant no was easier than the creation of discord. Surely there was no harm in this.

However, the day finally came when it was always a yes, never a no, and she had become a lost puppet.
