Friday 55 Flash Fiction # 87 Red Carpet

Muriel stepped confidently onto the red carpet.

She walked steadily along its plushness.
She was nervous.
She'd done everything asked of her.
Would she be celebrating or distraught, returning along it's length?
All she could think about were the results.

Reaching the door Muriel's last thought was...
Strange choice, red carpet in a hospital corridor!

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 a great 55 M'Dear. You never cease to amaze me. Red carpet hmm was it the psych ward? LOL. have a great Friday

Quilly said...

When I was a kid our local hospital had red carpeted corridors. We surmised that it better hid the blood stains ....

Flowerpot said...

how did she walk in those shoes?!!

anthonynorth said...

At first I was thinking school exam results. Great twist. Those results can spell scary times or great relief.

Dr.John said...

I just love the twist you put on your 55's. You remain my hero.

Mine is posted

Mona said...

Great twist in the end!

Reminds me of Queenie though. I hope she is all right....

Hootin' Anni said...

Ewwwww, I'd agree, red could be the color of blood tho...maybe that was their thinking? [oh never mind!]

My 55 is posted [scroll down below my Friday Show n Tell!]

snowelf said...

Awesome Akelamalu! Although I feel for the poor thing, knowing you, I'm sure the results were good news. Maybe she's having a baby and she's had issues getting pregnant. ;)


Dianne said...

Maude Lynn said...

Ah, loved the twist on the end -- a hospital ward. Where was this hospital, China perhaps?

Loved it.

Wait. What? said...

Good one this week!

Connie T. said...

Nice 55. I would have bad vibes if I saw red carpet in a hospital.

Akelamalu said...

Ah, that's what I was hoping people would think Spiky, so it worked!

Cheers Mike, nice to see you back. :)

Yes it is unusual Fandango! :0

China? Possibly Susan ;)
