Friday 55 Flash Fiction # 51 The Boss Is Coming To Dinner.....

The Boss Is Coming To Dinner

Nadine had everything under control.

She'd tested the menu the previous week.

Bought only the best ingredients, fine wine,

exquisite tableware and linen, couture dress.

She was nervous about entertaining Dominic's boss and his wife.
She needed to make a good impression; Dominic's promotion depended on it.

"Rinner's Deady" she called, clutching her empty wineglass.

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