Each week, Charli Mills at the Ranch hosts the Congress of Rough Writers flash fiction challenge. This week’s prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write about an audience.
“So, the roof will be done next Friday,” Torry confirms. She makes a note to drive by and check on Wednesday. At some point she needs to go through the inside, see what needs to be done. She’ll need a heavy cleaning crew and painters at the least. Then the fun stuff: choosing flooring, draperies, a living room suite. Patio furniture. Wet bar.
It all depends on how you carry it off. She is not in reduced circumstances; she is living in the investment house she intends to flip.
Always leave your audience thinking you meant to do that.
This flash is a vignette from The Life and Times of Jane Doe. More fun flashes from other writers are at the link above.
