Friday 55 Flash Fiction #209 The Night Shift...

He was afraid of the dark.

Hated being out at night.

Abhorred shadowed corners, the silence, the loneliness, the blackness,  not seeing daylight.

The night seemed endless, unceasing, perpetual, eternal. 

If only he could do another job, any job, a day job,

but it was impossible, utterly impracticable.

Vampires could only work the night shift!

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.

What does it say about me when I can relate with a vampire? The night shift can be a serious bummer.

Heaven said...

I haven't worked the night shift yet, but being a vampire, the choices are limited ~

Happy weekend ~
