Friday 55 Flash Fiction #118 Trophies...

He stared at the trophies on display.

He hated them, but he didn't want to upset his hosts.

He made polite conversation, hopefully nodding in all the right places.

He' stumbled across the village somehow and now he wanted to get away as soon as possible.

He couldn't be sure whether they still practiced....


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 out on a jaunt today so I'll catch up with you all over the weekend.  Have a good one.

One of my blog friends has a real shrunken head, inherited when one of her relatives died. It's disgusting!

Gillian said...

Quilly said...

That would make one a bit cautious about insulting one's host.

Shrinky said...
