Friday 55 Flash Fiction #126 Passion...


Tom spent hours watching.


Secreted in the bushes, camera poised.


There had been a couple of hairy moments when he'd been questioned


but he'd managed to convince them it was purely innocent


and so he'd continued with his passion.


All he asked was just one glimpse of


the White-Crowned Sparrow reported in the area.




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.

It would seem the bird watcher would watch more birds if he were not hidden in the bush. I skeptical of what he is watching.
