Friday 55 Flash Fiction # 80 One Good Turn..




The old man blinked, vaguely recongising the boy from the shopping precinct.



"This is for you" the boy handed him a cheque for £5000




"What's this for?" he asked


"To thank you" replied the boy smiling.




"Remember when you gave me £2 last week?

Well I spent £1 on a lottery ticket and won £50,000".







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.

buffalodick said...

I have an odd theory about giving. I think we do it because it makes us feel good...Usually that is the only reward you get!

Excellent story. Now that is a sign of respect and honesty. Well written :)

Now if that happened to a dragon we would split 50/50 . We know you humans don't think that way so he did well.
Good 55.

Humanity at its best. I am trying to get up the courage to try to do a '55 flash fiction'. It is a neat idea but I am afraid it is much harder than it looks. I am pretty wordy. My husband would be happy if I could keep it to 55 words on Fridays ~ :)

cheshire wife said...

What luck! And how thoughtful of the young man.

Byz. said...

I believe some people still have generous, honorable hearts. :)

Akelamalu said...

It's not as hard as you think Deb, just have a go, you'll do fine! :)

If only it happened in real life Cheshire Wife, wouldn't it be wonderful?

I guess there are some people with generous hearts out there Eaton. :)
