Friday 55 Flash Fiction #112 Dream Life...



She was on her way to England.


At last she would have the life she had always dreamed of.


Suddenly she felt ill - sick, sweating, head swimming, blurred vision.


"Are you alright madam?" asked the stewardess.


"Why do they do it?" wondered the coroner.


"Being a mule for the drug barons is just too dangerous!"






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.

Now that's enough to put anybody off! :) Good point though to get across in a 55.

I didn't expect that twist!
Can't understand how anyone could take that risk! Life is too short.

Wow, that's even more twisty than your usual endings! Didn't see that one coming at all!

Deb said...

Once again you totally surprised me. Sad truth for too many. Happy Weekend!

Quilly said...

Excellent 55! Why do they do it? She pretty much got what her stupidity deserved.

Akelamalu said...

Thanks Cloudia

Glad you liked it Ji :)

Cheers Jamie

Definitely a silly/stupid thing to do Dulce

Glad the twist worked Linda :)

It is a very sad truth Deb:(

Yes she did, not an easy way to make money Quilly

cheshire wife said...

I suppose that if you are desparate enough you will take any risk.

On a more cheerful note a Happy Easter to you!

Eternally Distracted said...

I read the first few lines and definitely didn't expect the ending...

hope said...

Ow! Bad choices are one thing but this one....

Nicely done!

aims said...

Very good! Great twist - too bad the mules don't read this before they accept the job.

Travis said...

Oh my goodness. There's just no such thing as easy money.

Jeff B said...

Everything has a price doesn't it? Some mush higher than others.

Indigo said...

such is life.. desperate or otherwise. Some times we don't have an option.. some times we don't realise just how well off we are, even if we have nothing. I will be back... just love your blog

lettuce said...

it doesn't bear thinking about really

Gary said...

wow.

People have their reasons for what they do but it is so sad that for many the options are so limited that doing things like this are worth the risk.

I like your 55. That is discipline.
