Friday 55 Flash Fiction # 84 The Ring

He chose the ring carefully.

He'd checked the size three times.

He couldn't get it wrong, that wouldn't do at all.

He'd been planning for a while and the time was right.

It was going to be tricky getting it on but hopefully

the vet would have it through the bull's nose in a jiffy.

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.

hah! Someone else who was up early! Another good one Ak - enjoy your weekend!

CJ said...

I thought this was going in a completely different direction. Of course, with so many body piercings these days, it might have been meant for his girlfriend's nose.

My storytelling nose failed me on this one :-)
Nicely done.

Fandango said...

Npbody would dare put a ring in a dragon's nose. Poor bull.
Well done

Ours is posted.

I'm always up early Flowerpot. Though I may stay in bed until 7.30 for the next 7 weeks - school's out!

I'm pleased you didn't second guess the ending CJ. :)

So glad the twist got you Anthony :)

Anyone trying to put a ring through a dragon's nose would have to be stark staring mad Fandango! LOL
