Flash in the Pan

“Aubrey, what am I going to do? The police said I would probably never see the money again. Do you have a pen? I have to fill out this report.”

“They have to tell you that so when they never catch the guy, they can say they never promised you they would.” As she tried to fish a pen from the bottom of her purse, the wallet dropped to the floor, spilling hundred dollar bills across the tile.

Welcome to “Flash in the Pan”

The upper word limit for December is 100 words. This flash comes in at a mere 78. The word for this week is fish. Today, I chose verb over noun. Which one will you choose?

If you are playing along for Flash in the Pan, or would like to join for the first time, visit the Flash in the Pan page to learn how to be a part of the second edition of FTP. We are nearing the end. Just three more flashes before this set of words closes, and I introduce the spring words.

Happy Flashing!


Have you ever had anything stolen? Did you get it back? Did you or the police find out who did it? What would you do if you found the person was someone pretending to help you find the thief? Which would be worse: The wallet is Aubrey’s or the victim’s?

  1. ow…what a twist!!!
    it makes me wonder how she’ll react next.

  2. I had my jacket with house keys stolen from my very first car, many years ago.
    I was a youngster looking to get “jiggy” with my ex-fiancée, sneaked upstairs to her place (my head was somewhere else) whilst stupidly forgetting to take my jacket out of the car.
