Friday 55 Flash Fiction #149 Nuisance...

He flitted about the room, pausing every now and then to ingest some food.

He knew it irritated people, his constant to-ing and fro-ing but that was how he was.

Eventually, he knew, they would get pissed off with him and he would have to go.

Dispatched, swatted with a rolled up newspaper - dratted fly!

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.

Excellent story! But unlike some of you other characters I felt no sympathy for the fly.

Travis Cody said...

Indeed. There's only so much tolerance for a fly before it gets swatted.

Quilly said...

Ha! Too funny. At first I thought you were writing about a begging dog -- or my sister who loves to snatch food off other people's plates!

Mama Zen said...

Got him!

Raven said...

Yes...dratted flies. Loved it.

Linda said...

Ah, I managed to guess that one this time! Very well done!

Anonymous said...

I always find that the second that newspaper comes out the fly disappears - I reckon they learn to run away from certain items when they are in fly school :)

Akelamalu said...

Well done Linda

I think you're right S,D&BS LOL
