Friday 55 Flash Fiction # 91 Going Home.....




Charlie looked around.


He'd no idea where he was, or how he'd got there.






He must be in the same country, he'd only been in the car about two hours.


Eventually he spotted a landmark he recognised.





As he got to the door he heard......


"Come on Charlie, you're the best homing pigeon I've got!"






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.
