Friday 55 Flash Fiction #178 Torture...





He hated it when they washed him with that horrible medicated stuff.

It stung like hell, made his back feel as though it was on fire

and the water was too hot, scalding him.

Why do they do it, why can't they leave me alone?

They're trying to get rid of me....

because I'm bacteria.



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 had to do the cat with flea spray a couple of days ago (cos of the late summer I assume!) and I thought at first you were writing about that.

This is very clever. I like it.
