Friday 55 Flash Fiction # 29 The Supplier

The Supplier

The yacht glided across the channel.

“We have to be there for 2am.” said the captain

“Our supplier won’t wait.”

Silently they slipped into the harbour.

The boss would be expecting his fix as soon as he woke up.

“Have you got it?”

“Yep, the last box of jellybabies in the village” said the supplier.

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.

I thought I'd do a lighter one this week after two murders on the trot Ciara!

A jellybaby is like a jellybean only in the shape of a baby Buff.

Thanks James x

This drug only rots your teeth Lime!

Cheers RN. Shayne does look a little like Brad now you mention it, they're both gorgeous.

I like the sound of this captain!

Pauline said...

A jelly baby junkie! Love it!

Donnetta Lee said...

Very cute! I guess a jelly baby is like a jelly bean. Maybe shaped like a baby?? Or tiny little jelly beans?? When you're out of 'em--you are really out of pocket!

smarmoofus said...

Ahhhhh.... fix! Aren't harmless little addictions like this fun? I'm not familiar with jellybabies, but I've craved things to this same degree before. I can certainly relate.


Akelamalu said...

Yeah he's a good guy GIM :)

That's him Pauline!

You got it Donnetta :)

Harmless addiction but not good for the teeth Smarmoofus :)

cathy said...

I love jelly babies.

Anonymous said...

You won't believe this but I was actually eating jellybeans as I read this. Okay, I know it's not the same thing, but it is eerily close.

Akelamalu said...

MWM loves them too Cathy :)

Spooky Citizen! :0

Redheels said...

Loved it! I am exactly the same over my "jelly bellies". I buy them in BULK. :)

Akelamalu said...

From the 'supplier' redheels? ((wink,wink))
