Friday 55

It's time to play "Write a story in 55 words".   When you do, be sure to let the G-Man know. 


 
 
 
“Do we have plenty of food?  Batteries?  
Fresh water for three days?” he demanded, flashlight in hand.

“Yes.”

“Car tank full?  Cell phone charged?  Got cash?  Or matches?  
Fire’s good,” he muttered.  
“Had your shots?” he added, eyeing the dog.

“That’s it,” she sighed.  “No more Stephen King before bedtime”.

LOL I didn't see that end coming. U thought a murder was at hand. LOL Ohh boy. Stephen King. Well done my friend. :)

You got me! Brilliant.

I think Stephen King is one of the most underrated authors ever. I really love a lot of his books, and think "The Stand" should have won the Pulitzer, or something.
Still, he does sell quite a lot, so I expect he's not too worried.
