Friday 55 Flash Fiction #198 Brave.....






The tension was unbearable,

standing in a slowly diminishing line.

Others wending their way back, having completed their mission.

Some smiling, some grimacing, one thing in common.

He stood stonefaced, giving nothing away, shaking inside.

He was in the army, he couldn't run

but he was terrified of needles and had to have his shots.




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.

Been there, done that, and it was just like you described.

MorningAJ said...

I agree. I'm not sure that I'd like to face the other things he'll have to do in the army - but I hate needles!

Shrinky said...

Ha! Reminds me of when my hubby-to-be fainted, when we went to get our jabs for our honeymoon destination!

Akelamalu said...

Needles don't bother me Melanie but my eldest son faints at the thought! LOL

I agree AJ he's got far worse things to face!

LOL but he went through with it Shrinky - and the vacinations too! ;)

HA! Excellent finish!

It's funny because I'm not fond of getting an injection, but I don't mind having my blood drawn. Isn't that weird?

Have a great weekend, m'dear!
