Friday 55 Flash Fiction #27 Dinner?


“I know we’ve only just met but come to dinner?’ he asked
“7.30 tomorrow, I’ll cook, here’s my address.”

“What a lovely place, are these new carpets, they’re still covered in plastic?”

“Impressive range of knives and pans you have, you obviously like cooking.”

“Oh I do” he said
What’s for dinner?” she asked


Friday 55 Flash Fiction is brought to you by G-man (Mr Knowitall). The object of the game is to write a story using exactly 55 words. If you want to take part pop over and let G-man know when you've posted your 55.

Dianne said...

I love that the carpet is still covered in plastic! Fantastic detail.

Mona said...


This reminds me of a real life incident in my sister's neighborhood, where a psychopath Nanny killed & cooked the baby for dinner!

the teach said...

Akelamau, great fiction piece! But when I read there was plastic on the carpet I just knew there was going to be trouble - I guess I watch CSI and Law and Order too much! Ha! :)

Akelamalu said...

Thanks Dianne x

OMG is that true Mona? :0

Me too Teach! ;)

storyteller said...

Ohmygosh … that one took me totally by surprise until I saw the last photo!!! I’ve shared a bit of what I’ve learned in my Photoshop Elements class on each of my blogs today … all in Haiku … with illustrations because I’m having such fun playing with possibilities ;--)
Hugs and blessings,
