“I’m soooooo excited! Wait until you see this room,” Kate dragged Marcia across the landing and flung the door open.

“I always wanted one!”

Marcia wasn’t sure how to react, it was amazing, quite unusual in a two bed semi.

“Wow, Kate what does Simon think?”

“He wanted it for his records, but I’ve made him keep them in the boxes in the garage!”

Marcia giggled, Kate always seemed to get her way, she gingerly walked her fingers across the spines of the books. At least some of them were Simons. She wondered if Kate knew about them after all.

  1. Hmmm, seems like the next scene could be one that changes the story to a murder mystery (or not mystery.) Maybe a bookshelf that must not have been set up quite right could fall on Marcia. With friends like that, who needs enemies?

    • Thanks Janet, she isn’t such a good friend doing this to Kate after all. I like your idea of a sequel. Especially if Kate knows or suspects already. Plenty of sizzle in this flash to keep writing with – the 2nd one that has turned out to give me more than just 100 words.

    • Thank you, as with last week’s entry they begin to write themselves, now I am more used to the elements of a flash and from reading others I have seen how to pack them into 100 words. The endings of both the last 2 pieces have been deleted and were changed just before posting. I am glad that this one works. I decided it was a much more fulfilling twist. And reading back I saw that there were some clues set up for the reader too, a happy accident 🙂
