Friday 55 Flash Fiction # 94 Shock......

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.

The wind was howling, leaves swirling outside, she hated this time of year.

Suddenly a knock on the door.

Wiping her hands, she went to answer.

Opening the door a crack she jumped back in horror at the grotesque sight that greeted her.

A scream escaped her lips.

The children laughed and accepted the treats.


Do you know 5th November is Blogblast for Peace? Bloggers all over the world will be posting the same post

Dona Nobis Pacem
Latin for "Grant Us Peace"

and flying a Peace Globe with their own message for Peace. The Title of the post is important. The goal is for all blog post titles to say the same thing on the same day. Write about peace that day or simply fly your globe.

Be part of it, join in by going here and following the instructions of how to get your Peace Globe and join in the biggest Blogblast for Peace ever - it's really easy honest.

Martin Luther King, Jr.:
One day we must come to see that peace is not merely a distant goal we seek, but that it is a means by which we arrive at that goal. We must pursue peaceful ends through peaceful means.

That reminds me of my Grandma! She wasn't fond of Halloween so every year her daughter took her to a movie after the grand kids had visited.

Every year as a little kid, I would pray that Grandma go to see a good movie. ;)
