Friday 55 Flash Fiction #10 Winning Numbers

Winning Numbers

"Have you got the lottery numbers for me?" demanded Jack

"Perhaps it's a bad line and they can't hear you" said Jill

"Can you hear me?"

A waste of time, thought Jack, it had been Jill's idea.

8 14

Jill smiled

23 38

as the


glass slid across the table


selecting the numbers.

Friday 55 Flash Fiction is brought to you by susiestheboss.


Little Wing said...

DElween said...

don't much about i'm a little blur

Flowerpot said...

we won some money on the lottery last year and nearly passed out! £90! So we put it in a pot and had lots of takeaways - well, several - to celebrate!

Pauline said...

Great 55 and a new way to choose the weekly numbers!

Akelamalu said...

You're a lottery winner Little Wing? You won't let it change you, will you? ;)

Thanks Ciara. x
Weigh in tomorrow :(

You look surprised Lettie :)

You don't understand it Elween? Sorry.

Glad to hear you enjoyed your winnings Flowerpot :)

I might give it a try Pauline, better than a lucky dip!

Linda said...

That might be the best way to pick one's numbers as coming up with my own doesn't seem to work and who knows if the Quik-Pik machine isn't using the same method??

Ah, wouldn't it be nice to see one's numbers come up? The things you could then - the freedom you'd have ... it boggles the mind!

lime said...

well there's a method for you!

RUTH said...

Great 55....I'm tempted to try those numbers :o)

Nea said...

how cute...and very creative. I have often wondered do you belong to a creative wrirting group or did you begin flash fiction on your own. It is quite imaginative.

Dumdad said...

Akela, you must try these numbers in the lottery this Saturday - you never know.

I remember when I won £15 million on the lottery last year my wife, always a worrier, said to me: "What about the begging letters?"
I replied: "Oh, I'll keep writing those."

Anndi said...

If I win using your numbers I'll give you a cut *pinky swear*...

Akelamalu said...

If I ever won the big one I'd host a huge bloggers party and fly you over here to enjoy it Linda. x

I wonder if it would work Lime?

Go on Ruth, they might be lucky for you. x

Susiestheboss started it Nea I just joined in 10 weeks ago. :)

Ha ha, that's an old one Dumdad. Did you really win £15 million????

Thanks Anndi I hold you to it. x

Miss Understood said...

Where did those numbers come from? You should make it one of your lines every week (if you do the lottery) but if not, you shoud start! Great 55!

James Goodman-Horror Writer said...

Very cool 55. I'll have to knock the dust off my Ouija board before I pick up my next lottery ticket. :D

airplanejayne said...

Ouija boards give me the willies.

scary things!

but if you win....I will want to come to the party!

CG said...

You amaze me every Friday. a big bloggers party...sounds fun!

Anonymous said...

very good

barman said...

I am so with AirplaneJane. A big no on Ouija boards for me.

Oh and by the way, I think when you use the Ouija boards you need to be more specific. Did they spell out which lottery and how about which day. You know how those Jeanie's are always tricking everyone. I bet the board is just as bad.

Very clever 55.

'JoAnn's-Digital-Eyes' said...

Hi Akelamalu.

about the lottery... I sure hope for you that you will win something, thats better than my (bad ) luck , I take part i the postcode lottery and the generallooterey, but I do not wim much, not yet... I hope we will once win the million Euros, If so I'll be gone and move to a warm country. what will you do when you win the highest price???

Have a great and creative weekend! I hope to see you also back on my blog, you're being welcome,
Greetings from JoAnn Photography

Tot's Mom said...

Lottery numbers... no luck with them thus far. Wish it's that easy to pick the 6 numbers.

Akelamalu said...

I don't know where they came from Miss U, maybe I should start using them. x

Welcome James GHW - let me know if you win ;)

They give me the willies too airplanejayne - I have a few tales to tell about Ouija boards!

Ah thanks cg and if there's a party you'll definitely be coming. x

Thanks for dropping by Southern Sage glad you enjoyed it.

Oh damn, I forgot to ask all that Barman! :(

Hi JoAnn, if I won the big one I'd travel the world!

Nice to meet you Toadee and thanks. :)

Cheers g-man x

Why thankyou Nick :)

OK Linda, I'll be over later.

If those numbers win Bankerchick there's going to be a lot sharing :)

I suppose it's a good a way as any s, thanks.

I don't choose numbers I just take the lucky dips Tot's Mom

buffalodickdy said...

Well, I've just about everything else...still no win!

smarmoofus said...

Wouldn't it be funny if all your readers picked your numbers and they hit big? How cool would you feel?


Ron said...

You amaze me how you put these things together!!! This one's a BEAUT!

Bravo!! VERY clever, Akelamalu!

The Ouiji board is my favorite.

I'm not a big lottery player...however, you've inspired me to try this week! And if I Do's 50/50!!

Do you have a PAYPAL account???

aCey said...

hi, akelamalu. you're good at this flash fiction thing. i wish i could make 1 good fiction, too. hehe. i'm bad with fiction because of my training in news writing in school. :(

Akelamalu said...

Me too Buffalo!

I'd be SHOCKED Smarmoofus!

I hope you win Ron and yes I do have a paypal account ((wink)) x

Why thank you Acey, I'm sure your writing is excellent. :)

Travis said...

I'd say that's as good a way as any to pick numbers. Nice 55 as always.

Akelamalu said...
