Ten Days of Flash - Day 7

Writer Leone Ross has a challenge on her Facebook page called Ten Days of Flash, with the goal of having participants write flash fiction every day for ten days. I found it via Remittance Girl's blog and thought it looked fun, so I decided to jump on board... right around day 7. Because if you're going to do something, you might as well do it half-assed, I guess.

But what the hey. The Day 7 challenge was to write a 55-word piece of flash fiction inspired by one of five posted photos. I choose the picture shown above, and came up with the story below.

THE CLIENT

The client’s teeth chattered. Malcolm lent the man his jacket.


“Warmer now, Mister Griffin? Do you need gloves? I’ve only rubber ones, I’m afraid."


The jacket nodded. Malcolm fetched them, acting as thought this were all perfectly normal.


“Better? Okay, from what you’ve told me, you definitely have a libel case against this Wells character...”
