Friday 55 Flash Fiction #140

It seemed like a good idea when they met to discuss it.

They hadn’t reckoned on someone leaking what they were planning though.

Unfortunately for one Guy he was caught

guarding 36 barrels of gunpowder in the bowels of the House of Lords

And sentenced to death.

Gunpowder, treason and plot!

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.

So true, and still we celebrate!

Sandi McBride said...

HAPPY GUY FAWKES DAY! My boys loved this celebration to replace our own July 4th fireworks displays when we were all living in and loving England!

G-Man said...

This is Guy Fawkes day?
He was such a scamp!
Loved your 55 AKE...
Maybe I'll light off some of my pyrotechnics.
Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End...G

Dumdad said...

Boom, boom!

Daryl said...

Arent you clever to do that tie in!

Maggie May said...

Yes...... we celebrate here but I think things are changing.
We used to buy fireworks individually and have parties in our gardens. However people are leaning more towards organised firework displays and I think these are much safer.

Nuts in May
