Friday 55

Welcome to Friday 55. The object of the exercise is to write a story using exactly 55 words. If you participate, be sure to drop a comment at G-Man’s blog so others will know how to find your story.



Lighting flashes. The sky growls in protest. A hunched figure rushes up the sidewalk, braving the cool bite of the wind. She grips her bag tightly as she reaches for the doorbell. “Trick or Treat.” Her shoulders sagging, she watches the apple fall from the old man’s hand into her bag. “Trick it is then.”

Don’t forget to stop by Oh, Get a Grip! today. This week we are discussing… well, just swing by and take a gander.
