FLASH FICTION FOR THE PURPOSEFUL PRACTITIONER: WEEK #26 – 2016
Posted on June 23, 2016
Sam wakes up to “an inexplicable headache.” It is still dark, He shouts, “hello” into the phone. Sam your my best friend, you have to come with me to verify my alibi. I hit a deer last night at the Bridge, I will pick you up in 10 minutes.
It was really dark last night but I’m sure this is the place. You look sick Sam, “what time did you get home?” That deer had red eyes instead of green, spooked me! We have to find that animal for my alibi!
Later at the police station, “You were involved in a hit-and-run death.” “The blood on your car’s front bumper matches the blood type of the deceased.” Deceased? “I did not hit anybody.” The officer replies, “there is a witness who saw your vehicle at the scene at the time of the hit-and-run accident, you were driving.”
Somebody took my car from the lounge, I have to find that person. “Sam can you help me?” What do you mean, “you can’t?” My God, best friend. “You could kill somebody and let me go to jail.?” “Are you their eye witness too?”
Sam’s eyes were blazing red!
