Flash in the Pan

The car was covered in snow. He had been sitting outside the diner for three hours before he spotted her.

The moment she was inside, he set to work. Rubbing his hands together as he jogged back to his car, he wished he would be able to see it happen. With a grin, he thought of his redheaded alibi across the state line. Maybe he was in for a fireworks show after all.

Welcome to "Flash in the Pan"

    • I believe when you do, you will find you are not so far removed from fiction as you may have believed. Flash is quite fun.
