Marshall never looked up. When Cabol was finished, he’d see the phoenix on his back for the first time in a photograph.
“Patsy, I can’t explain it any plainer. The phoenix represents how lucky I am to be alive, okay? Look, if you don’t like my tattoos, get lost. I’ve had them longer than I have had you.”
Guys and Dolls, this is the last flash of the quarter. Precisely on limit at 100 words, the flash features this week’s word: alive.
Are your flashes in the SIB or on the FTP page? Today is the day! If your flashes are scheduled over the next 10 days, sent the text and the link through the Ask Momma box (under About Momma).
Tomorrow, the new words and the first Hot Flash for the summer FTP. You only get one hint: Are you hungry?
Do you have ink? What is Patsy really saying? What did Marshall survive? Even if you have no ink, what tattoo would you think is beautiful?
