Friday 55 Flash Fiction # 23 Vandals


“We’ll have to stop” said Brad “Don’t open the windows.”

“That crowd looks angry”, said Karen.

One of them pulled off a wiper whilst another tugged at the wing mirror.

“Drive, now, Brad please!”

They were all over the car now, banging, menacing, screeching.

“Hell” said Brad “We’re not coming to the safari park again!”

Friday 55 Flash Fiction is brought to you by G-man (Mr Knowitall). If you want to take part pop over and let G-man know when you've posted your 55.

I was frightened of stopping when I went Snowelf!

LOL Buff, mind you they are a bit viscious!

I bet they did g-man, that's teach them to take a packed lunch!

Ask them Julia, it would be funny if they did! :)

Thanks Bindi and the same to you honey.

Strumpet said...

I've never been to a safari park either...

...after reading THIS I don't know if I will!

This was really cute. I love animals.

And, as always, your images along with your words, provide a flow like no other...

Very cool.

storyteller said...

Fun ‘take’ for your ‘55’ this week! You always surprise (and delight)! Thanks for visiting my Haiku at Small Reflections this morning. I’ve got even more ‘ku (with additional links) at Sacred Ruminations today ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Thought I would pop over the pond and see what you were up to. I see. . . dialog games, how fun!

Odat said...

Ron said...

Excellent once again!!!!!

This reminded me of when I lived in Florida and we would go to Lion Country Safari!


Have a great weekend, Akelamalu!

I know you're enjoying Spring!

Akelamalu said...

Safara Parks are great fun Strumpet, you'd enjoy it.

Thanks Storyteller.

Just what I intended Cath! :)

Thank you Dianne, you're very kind.

Jo Beaufoix said...

Fabulous as usual Akela. :D
Oh, and tag, I have memed you. :D

Travis said...

I'll chime in with another nicely done!

I remember taking a tram through a wild animal park, but I can't recall where it was. I want to say Balboa Park in San Diego, but I don't know if that is right.

Misty Dawn said...

I always look forward to reading these and I am NEVER disappointed. Your talent never ceases to amaze me!

Akelamalu said...

Glad you enjoyed it Teach :)

Cheers Dumdad x

Thanks Jo, I'll take a look at the tag later.

A tram through a wildlife park Trav - no lions I hope? :)

You're too kind Misty, but thankyou.xx

smarmoofus said...

heheh I just finished watching "No End In Sight" before reading this, so of course I thought the worst. Definitely didn't have a safari park in mind! *giggles* So cute!


Akelamalu said...
