Friday 55 Flash Fiction #134 The Spoils..


The terrified driver watched powerlessly as they drove off with his truck.


In the garage they unloaded the boxes of 'Marlboro' cigarettes.


"We'll make a packet from this lot" said the boss gloatingly.


"Er, I don't think so boss, look at this" said one of the highjackers.


"the boxes are full of cardboard advertisements, sorry!"


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's a shame that all cigarette packets aren't like that! It would have saved me a fortune before I finally had enough willpower to stop by myself.

being brought up surrounded by smokers I never wanted to smoke - I once aged 8 took part in a "dare" but fortunately the wrong end was lit and the small fire put me off for life! lol!

Great build up - as ever!

Flash fiction means 500 words to me. It takes a mean bit of skill to encapsulate a story into 55. I must try it out.

Nice to see you again, Akelemalu!

Hey doncha remember the good old days of fag-advertising..? JPS "short, black and sides"... Silk Cut (cutting purple silk)... and my favourite: Benson and Hedges, all the letters running out of a golden tap.
I always thought the appeal of B&H was to the poorer classes. That glamorous packet was pretty much the only gold they owned...

Serves them right!
