Friday 55 Flash Fiction #187 The Best..

They are all clamouring for me, wanting the best that money can buy - that's me.

I can't remember how I got into it,

It is a lucrative business that keeps me in luxury.

My prices are high, but they are getting the best.

All the stables want their prize mares to breed with The Stallion.

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.

Loved the unexpected turn at the end ! Thought I knew where we were going and then, zip, you surprised me! You are one clever, creative writer. Someday I might just give Flash Fiction a try. It might help me be less wordy ! Happy weekend.
