“If that phone rings one more time, I am going to rip it out of the wall.”
Carrie cowered on the couch. She’d heard this speech before. She pushed herself up and toward the kitchen.
She set dinner on the table, knowing better than join him for the meal. She crawled into bed, falling into fitful dreams. It wasn’t the ringing which woke her. The cord wrapped around her neck did.
This week’s word is “dinner”. Flash in the Pan has an upper limit for September of 125 words. Tonight’s flash weighs in at the featherweight of 71 words.
Everyone interested in playing along with FTP need only pick one of the featured words, write a flash (staying under or at the maximum number of words for the month), and link back to the post where the word is featured. If you would like to get ahead or catch up, the words are posted on the Flash in the Pan page where your flashes will be linked.
Flash in the Pan will be a quarterly publication compliments of Redmund Productions. All entries will be published. Deadline for this edition is 30SEP12. Entries must be linked before 2359 EDT (GMT-5). All non-WordPress users need to email their links via Ask Momma.
How long has it been since you had a telephone corded to the wall? Do you still have a land line? Who is “he”?
