Friday 55 Flash Fiction # 79 Trust Me

She was terrified as he inserted the needle into her arm.

He'd promised her it wouldn't hurt and she would feel great.

She drifted off, feeling pleasantly happy, light and relaxed.

Later, coming back to full consciousness, she was glad she'd trusted him........

The mirror told her the liposuction had worked - her saddlebags had disappeared.

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.

I'm out tonight folks and out all day tomorrow so won't have time to visit, but I promise I will catch up on Sunday.  Have a great weekend.

Nicely done. Strangely, I've done the other side of the subject this week.

Dumdad said...

How awful - while she was having cosmetic surgery someone stole her saddlebags! Still, if she'd cycled more often she wouldn't have needed the liposuction...

Sometimes Saintly Nick said...

Delightfully excellent, as usual!

Lou said...

Who knew it was so easy;)

(sshh..sign me up!)

Susan at Stony River said...

LOL Not what I expected--loved the ending.

(Now can you send that doctor over my house? *sigh*)

G-Man said...

Thanks Ake for your always whimsical 55's..
Thanks for visiting, and have a Great Week-End...G

Dr.John said...

I love that little twist that takes you where you didn't expect to go.
Great 55

Hootin' Anni said...

Hmmmmmmm, they're shapely no matter which way you look at it.

Mine's posted.

Nessa said...

Great way to pack a surprise in so few words.

Mona said...

Thank god for modern science! :D

cheshire wife said...

I'd rather go to the gym.

Daryl said...

Funny ... and clever .. as always!

snowelf said...

I'd love to go to sleep and wake up thinner... I don't want any work done on my face, but the thought of thinner thighs...dream dream dream...


Eaton Bennett said...

Hmmm, I don't know about this, does the fat come back? My 55 is about looks too, kinda.

Fallen starlet

Donnetta Lee said...

Oh, I wish I were brave enough to do it! This one was fun. D

Ron said...

Another BRAVO, Akelamalu!

You amaze me with your creativity!

Thanks for sharing!

Have a great weekend, m' dear!

Shrinky said...

Oooooooooooooh, Given the chance, I would shamelessly have a bit of that done on my belly, in less than a heartbeat!

Fandango said...

Needles in people make us dragons nervous. I wonder if they would be so quick if they knew the Doctor had us dagons suck out the fat. And it is tasty. Good 55

Ours is ready to read

You always are so clever with these. Great ending. I hope the saddle bags don't come trotting back up to her one day Aloha :)

Empress Bee (of the High Sea) said...

yup they're gone all right! ha ha

smiles, bee

aims said...

Not sure I would be so trusting. I've heard some horror stories.

Shouldn't we be happy with who we are inside?


(I like to really work on making myself believe all that stuff - and I am really happy with who I am inside. Finally)

jadey said...

LOL great job. Have a great weekend. my 55 is up

San said...

Akelamalu, that's a lean, mean flash fiction today!

Mama Zen said...

Liposuction always makes me think of the movie Fight Club (the guys steal the liposuctioned fat to make soap).

Cloudia said...

The HOnolulu Star Bulletin will publish my piece on THursday, 2 days after my birthday, and in time for Fathrs' Day.......Aloha, Ake

Akelamalu said...

I'll be over later to read yours Anthony, thanks m'dear.

I agree Dumdad, prevention would have been better. :)

Easy maybe Lou but I bet it's painful afterwards! :0

I'm so pleased you enjoyed it Susan :)

They'll be back G-man! ;)

Glad you liked it Dr.John :)

Yes they are Anni :)

Aw thanks Nessa :)

Mmmm a bit extreme though don't you think Mona? ;)

Me too Cheshire Wife!

Thanks Daryl xx

If only it were that easy and painless Snowelf :0

I think probably the fat does come back Eaton so it's a waste of time and money really isn't it? :(

I'm not brave enough either Donnetta!

You're very kind Ron Mwaah x

You're brave Shrinky! :0

Oooh Fandango, you suck out the fat? LOL

Aw thanks Thom you're very kind. x

Looks like it Bee :)

Some people are never happy with who they are Aims, I'm glad you are m'dear. xx

Cheers Jadey x
