Friday 55 Flash Fiction # 110 A Delicate Operation....

This was a delicate operation.

One she had carried out before.

She was nervous, but confident in her ability.

She double checked that everything was prepared.

All the equipment needed was assembled.

"Here we go".

She prepared the skin, holding it taut with one hand,

she swiftly ripped the waxing strip off her husband's back.

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.
