Flash Fiction site, "Carrot Ranch Communications" does a weekly 99 word challenge. This week's challenge (11/9/16) is "write a story that pivots around an unexpected ending".
In lieu of watching the news, commenting on the news, and hating the news, I figured to give it a go. Anything to take my mind off the nightmares that will haunt me for at least the next 4 years.
My effort this week:
The Deplorable Double Wide
Roscoe opened his eyes. Disoriented, he took stock of his surroundings. He was seated at a wooden table in the kitchen of a deplorable double wide.
Where he was now was not the location of his last waking moment. He was sure it was tipping shots and slapping backs with his Wall Street buds in lower Manhattan. On the big screen, their guy was kicking ass.
“Uh, Where am I?”
A pudgy hand with no wrist dropped a plate of Spam and eggs in front of him.
“Home, you dumass. You got shitfaced last night cuz your man won.”
There you have it.
Keep it 'tween the ditches
