Friday 55 Flash Fiction # 81 Marked

The weather was sweltering.

104 degrees and rising.

People were looking at him, but then he was the only one not wearing shorts.

The sweat poured off him but he didn't have a choice.

He had to keep his legs covered or they would know his secret, they'd spot

the electronic tag on his ankle.

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 off on another little jaunt today so I will catch up with you all over the weekend - have a good one!

I made the switch to shorts this week- hot weather!

Julia Smith said...

Now I'm going to look twice at anyone wearing jeans on a shorts day...

Susan at Stony River said...

Oh no, the poor thing!
I should be ashamed to admit it, but I thought his embarassment would come from someplace far away from his ankle so you really got me LOL.

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

Nessa said...

Very good story. I like the way you wrap them up.

Ron said...

And yet another brilliant story, dear lady!

Like, Thom...I always try to figure them out as I slowly scroll down, but to no avail!

Enjoy your jaunt!

Have a great weekend!

Lou said...

You got me, and I'm even familiar with this situation. (ahh, not me personally).

clean and crazy said...

this is cute, i love the twist at the end

hope said...

Hi! Came over from G-Man's site and realized I haven't been able to make it to everyone's 55 as I'm new to this. {I blame it all on Susan!}

That was fun! And how in the world did you take the sun from outside my window and place it on your blog? :0

I'll be back. And I'm trying ever so hard not to fall prey to the other word game...I have laundry to do, I can't stay on here all day. ;)

Hope you have/had a great time away.

Tall Karen said...

Brilliant 55! It was not at all what I suspected. Nice to meet you and thanks for your comments.

Cat said...

Oh wow. That would totally suck!

Love the music on your page as well!

anthonynorth said...

Yep, best for him to keep that covered - and sweating.
Nicely done, as always.

Travis said...

And hopefully he's not up to anything sinister!

I can't take the heat, I'd put on my shorts and let 'em talk!

Pouty Lips said...

And here I hide my legs in the sweltering Arizona heat to hide a silly tattoo.

Akelamalu said...

You know someone who has been tagged Lou?

Thanks Clean & Crazy I'm glad you enjoyed it.

I'm so pleased you popped over Hope and happy you enjoyed the stories. :)

Ah you liked the twist Tall Karen, that's great :)

Yes it would Cat, glad you like the music. :)

At least he's ashamed Anthony eh?

Thanks Lady's Life :)

No I think he just doesn't want anyone to know he's tagged Trav ;)

LOL I think most people would Vicki!

I do it to hide a huge scar Pouty Lips!
