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.



With a flick of the wrist, I induce a mighty rumble. The ground shakes, vibrations carry through my body. My left hand squeezes. The right one rotates up and down. My left foot kicks a lever and the beast is ready to be unleashed. I release her and we surge forward on the open road.

I thought when you induced the might rumble--well, I better not go there! And then, when the vibrations went all through your body--well. But ya had me fooled. On the road again...Clever one! D
