Friday 55 Flash Fiction #184 Stuck....

She grabbed the end and tugged.

It's stuck, she thought, she tugged again.

It didn't budge.

If I clear some of this other stuff it may come free.

She tried again.

It was no use.

"Ah that's the reason" she said

as she glared at the woman holding the other end of the sale dress.

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.


Mel said...

I HATE when that happens!

Shrinky said...

She should've packed her pepper spray..

MorningAJ said...

Maybe it's not so great after all if SHE thinks it's good. ;)

Nice 55.

Brian Miller said...

Daryl Edelstein said...

Akelamalu said...

Yep it could turn into a boxing match Brian LOL

LOL I can imagine Daryl

anthonynorth said...

Ah, slightly more violent than war, I find ;-)

Valerie said...

She should put it back, it will be worthless after all that tugging :O)

So THAT's the reason I don't like shopping! I'm too short to hold on for very long.

Happy new year to you!

You always have wondering where you're going with these Flash Fictions, and then POW me in the end with a STELLAR finish!

BRAVA, m'dear!

Have a wonderful weekend....X

G-Man said...

Two hot chicks 'Tugging' on the same object?
Thats kinda sexy Pearlie Mae.

Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End

Beach Bum said...

I personally never get between two ladies shopping, its too dangerous.

Akelamalu said...

I think you may be right there Anthony LOL

It could be a bit grubby Valerie :(

I like shopping but I never go to the sales Hope too much like hard work. LOL

You know I like a little twist at the end Ron, glad you enjoy them. :)

G-man Trust you! LOL

Definitely Beach :0

Yvonne Osborne said...

I smacked the butterfly and knocked my coffee over.

Just kidding.

I thought this was going to be sinister but then had to smile. Don't you just hate it when you end up eying the same garment on the sales rack?

Have a great weekend!!

Raven said... mind went into the gutter initially. Cute. Loved the twist. :)

Akelamalu said...

Ah glad to hear you enjoyed the twist b>Yvonn>Raven, what on earth were you thinking? LOL

cheshire wife said...

And after all of that it probably wasn't her size!

Deb said...

The funny thing is that this has happened to so many of probably isn't fiction ! You pulled me in and held me in suspense right up to the ending ! Happy weekend !

Banker Chick said...

I really laughed at this, had a similar thing happen, but I had passed it up then went back and some one else was holding it. I hovered then swooped when she put it back. It fit.

Linda said...

This is where someone needs to step in with the King Solomon attitude and offer to split the dress in half!

Mama Zen said...

You always make me laugh!

Empress Bee (of the high sea) said...

oh good one!

smiles, bee

Akelamalu said...

Yes you're probably right Cheshire Wife LOL

Glad you enjoyed it Deb and I'm sure you're right about it happening often.

Hovering is good Bankerchick, they usually put it down at some point. ;)

Oh but it would be no use to anyone then Linda!

Well I'm always happy if you're happy Mama Zen :)

Thanks Bee x
