I decided to enter the Indies Unlimited Flash Fiction Challenge this week - after a little prodding from a fellow author.
For those who do not know what the challenge is about, I will give you a little summary.
You are given a starting point to the story and must finish it within 250 words. Yes, it is that easy ... or that difficult.
The prompt this week:
George walked the halls of his old high school with the lavishly-wrapped package in hand. He’d seen it in the airport and immediately knew it would be the perfect gift for Mrs. Davies – his English teacher during his senior year. George grinned as he smoothed the lapel of his Armani suit. She’d told him he’d never amount to anything. He’d already proved her wrong, and then some. Now, he couldn’t wait to see the look on her face when she saw him…and opened the gift. He knew the twenty-six dollar sign was going to be worth every penny…
George reached the office that he was certain still belonged to Mrs. Davis. Turning the doorknob as he knocked and slowly peeked in, he couldn’t wait to see her reaction.
