Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers – Week of 2-25-2015

This is getting ridiculous. Enough is enough! They were making this hullabaloo since they moved here. The noise, the parties all evening, the flood lights, posh cars driving around. Don’t they know that we can hear all them? No consideration at all. We still have a job to go to in the morning. Not messing around, playing tennis all day. They have a lot of time on their hands. I need to go up there and say my piece. Otherwise I’ll call the police.

So off I went, knocked on their door three times.

Guess who opened the door? Roger Federer, being one of their guests.

“Can I help you?” asked him in a friendly way.

“I was about to talk to Mr. Murray. But since you’re here, can I have your autograph, please?” I’m such a chicken, me.

  1. Loved this! I would’ve buckled down too if Roger Federer answered the door. Probably would’ve fainted if it was Rafael Nadal (LOVE HIM!). By the way, I wonder if Mr. Murray is Andy Murray, hmmm…. 😉

  2. I liked your hook in the beginning, it really ramped up the stakes and I thought the ending was funny. It’s like …btw, lol. I was just a little unclear why she was chicken? For not doing what she came there to do or for asking for the autograph. Oh and you did a good job on the setting also in the beginning 🙂
