Try 3 - Flash Fiction




The Good Son
by Kathleen Kimball-Baker


If walls could talk, Gibbs would certainly be sacked.

Not that he failed to execute his tasks with utmost discretion.

And he always tended to ailing Lord Mortimer’s needs with tact and haste.


But on certain evenings, when everyone had retired,

Gibbs polished knives, forks, and spoons -- 

silverware he traded to pay his mother’s debts.

What a marvelously written 55.
You should be a professional writer or an editor, or something!

Keep up the good work, and have a Wonderful Week-End...G

What a story this brought to mind. I've just been reading this blog, going backwards, as you might say, and I'm so impressed with all your little tales, each a nugget of gold waiting for the reader.
