Friday 55 Flash Fiction #152 Old Friends.......

Carol watched the door waiting for Beverley's arrival.

She'd noticed the woman by the window, strange looking she thought.

Thirty minutes later Carol pulled on her coat and headed for the door.

"Hello Carol" said the woman by the window.

"Bev?   I didn't recognise you!"

"I had plastic surgery, what do you think?" asked Bev.

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.


Grandpa said...

I wonder if she told Bev that she's strange looking...:(

Anonymous said...

Another good one.

Ron said...

"I had plastic surgery, what do you think?" asked Bev."


And I was thinking about having a few shots of BOTOX, but on second thought.....

Great one, m'dear! As always.

Have a great weekend.....X

Finding Pam said...

SHe must have looked really different for her friend not to know her.

Great 55.

MorningAJ said...

Anyone who has botox deserves to look strange. When you find out how they test it you wouldn't go near the stuff. Serves her right!
Good 55 words.

Linda said...

That must have been quite the bit of plastic surgery she got there to have someone not even recognize her! Not sure if that's good or bad, though!

Maude Lynn said...


Stranger said...

Well why didn't Bev knock?
I'm not a fan of reconstruction aesthetics, so I think I'd be a little concerned about Bev's new look. Great 55.

moondustwriter said...

I guess if it looks better but if it's so different - Ha

Nice 55 ( sounds so realistic)

Empress Bee (of the high sea) said...

Spiky Zora Jones said...

Spiky Zora Jones said...

I had plastic surgery, what do you think?


sorry I'm still giggling. : )

Shrinky said...

Ha! Oopsie, looks like Bev has overdone it a little on her nips and tucks.. teehee.

Mona said...

Nice surprise! :) I am sure Carol was taken aback!

Akelamalu said...

Thanks Dumdad x

You don't need Botox Ron, you're perfect just the way you are. x

She did Pam!

I agree AJ, too risky by half!

Oh she had the works Linda!

Ooops that's exactly what Carol thought Mama Zen ;)

Carol was more than a little concerned about Bev's new look Stranger!

Too different moondustwriter

Oh I know what you mean Bee, far too drastic!

I'm so pleased you enjoyed this Spiky xx

Oh she had definitely overdone it Shrinky LOL

Indeed she was Mona :)

Maggie May said...

I should think plastic surgery would make any one look strange!
Maggie X

Nuts in May

cheshire wife said...

Cloudia said...

Jenny Cruz said...

What is new with Bev? Could it be her face? Thats the power of surgeries. It makes me laugh. Changes wans't that bad especially Plastic surgery Beverly Hills is a place quite known when it comes to surgeries.

Jenny Cruz said...

Now, people have become extremely conscious about their looks. You can get that with cosmetic surgery. This is best answer to all these woes concerning looks. That plastic surgery is the only way they can resort to for enhancing their lifestyle. Talk about Plastic surgery Beverly Hills is quite a good place for those who desires changes.

Odat said...

Good take on that one!! Plastic surgery can sure be scary sometimes...

Akelamalu said...

I agree with You Maggie!

Well I suppose that's the only reason people have plastic surgery Cheshire Wife but some go just too far don't you think?

No problem Cloudia you're here now. x

Some go just too far though Jenny.

You're so right Odat!
