Friday 55 Flash Fiction # 66 Power


You had the power,

So you gave me a hard time

You made me feel unhappy and angry.

I didn’t deserve it.

Now I’m the only one with the information you need.

The only one with the knowledge,

to make sure what needs to be done is done.
I’m the one with the power now!

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.

It is nice when the tides turn and you have the power. This never happens for me. Have a wonderful weekend.

"Knowledge Is Power" I've believed it since I first heard it...

Akelamalu said...

Yes it is work related Ciara and I'm not stressed at all, far from it! :)

I'm fine Flowerpot, what goes around comes around, it's my turn now. :)

Yes Nessa the tables have definitely turned. :)

They will be sorry Bee!

I'm in a good position now Daryl :)

This is the one and probably only time it will happen for me Pam and I'm making the most of it!

That's so true Buff x

There's a reason that conventional wisdom says "what goes around comes around."

Ain't karma wonderful?

ciara said...

woohoo! glad you're not stressed...i was so tired when i read this last night, but i know that if YOU have the power you really do have the upperhand, don't you? :)

Anonymous said...

Nice when that happens, eh?

Julia Smith said...

There's only one thing to say in that situation: nyah nyah nyah nyah nyah...

Just got caught up on your trip, part 4. It's nice that you could stay in the normal, everyday world rather than the fantasy tourist world.

buffalodick said...

Just thought I'd let you know, on the revisit-I listened to a lot of your music! I'm 140 miles from Motown, and I think you might know more about it than I ever will! Nice job! I'd love a dance or two with you someday...

Dr.John said...

Another great 55. Some week I'll try one.

G-Man said...

The power of VOODOO?
Use your power wisely My Dear!!
Excellent 55 Ake...
Thanks for visiting, thanks for playing, and have a Wonderful Week-End...G

"One's life is never in vain, no matter how short, if people remember you."

Ron said...

You said it, dear lady...

...what comes around, goes around!

Have an awesome weekend!


Lulda Casadaga said...

Doesn't it feel so good! Yeah!!
Have a stress free weekend..I am ...sucking down some champagne as I type! ;)

KB said...

I really do believe in what goes around comes around. Don't let the power go to your head.

Cloudia said...


Made my blood boil remembering such treatment. It's always work, isn;t it?

Glad you had revenge! Great piece!

I'm on the wrong side of the globe to read you early. I always seem to come here last. Bah!
Still, I feel awfully close to you, and enjoy seeing your grass skirt in my comments (you are a loyal pal!)

I saw To Sir With Love on telly today and thought I spotted you in several scenes. What a great "bird" you are. Aloha Gal Pal

Akelamalu said...

Karma is life's leveller Mojo :)

Precisely Ciara and it's a great feeling when you have the upper hand over someone who has tried to make your life a misery!

Absolutely Citizen!

nyah nyah nyah nyah nyah... is exactly what I felt like saying Julia! :) I'm pleased you've enjoyed the travelogue.

Oh Buff Motown is my favourite music and I love to dance - maybe one day we will get to dance together- I'd like that! :)

Dr. John I am absolutely sure you would do a fantastic job on a 55 - do try it! :)

I am biding my time G-man just waiting to get the punch line in! :)

Glad you like my saying Spiky I really feel that it is true. :)

Yep Ron

Oooh champagne Lulda? Enjoy honey.

Oh I'm being cautious with the power KB until the right time. ;)

"To sir with love" is one of my favourite films Cloudia if only I could have been in it! Yes honey it's always work but not for much longer and that's where me having the power comes in! ;)
