Friday 6/11/09 - "THE BOX - STEPS 1 & 2"

Friday Flash 55 is a story

written in exactly 55 words.

Let the G-Man know if you write one
and read the ones of your fellow writers.

"THE BOX - STEPS 1 & 2"

This voice she hears sounds so caring, loving, inviting, and at the same time, strong. It reminds her of Lucy.

She'll be able to speak. Hesitantly she replies, "I'm Darlene".

In the speaking of just those two words she realizes she will be able to ask for help and she believes things will change.


Prayer Girl
Note: The following was LAST WEEK's

"55 Flash Fiction Friday":




She can hear the ticking of the clock hanging above her writing table. Oh, God, what now? What if the woman on the other end hangs up? Maybe she should hang up.

"Help me. He hits me. I'm afraid. I drink. I'm worthless. What should I do? Please help me."

"What's your first name?"

Yes, that voice which we hear, sooner or later...a voice of caring, loving, a confident voice which said to me, "You can do this...with help."

In reality, it is the voice of God using a human to transmit His promise of Hope, Help and Power.

Truly, I love this story, and the sequel format bring some exciting anticipation to the Flash 55.
Peace. Love.

The hardest part is the beginning..once you are there, things follow...

Fandango said...

Dragons are much quicker to ask for help then you humans but we understand.
Our 55 is ready to be read.

I think that Darlene will get to a meeting, find the help that she needs, get 13th stepped by a handsome dude, think about relapsing but will find a strong sponsor, work the steps, do service work and love her life.
