July 25, 2019 Flash Fiction Challenge

This week’s Flash Fiction Challenge is from Carrot Ranch.

In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story that includes the phrase “for one day.” The words single out a special occurrence. What is the emotion and vibe, where does it take place and why? Go where the prompt leads!

“Honey, we never do anything anymore. For one day, I would like to complete everything on my bucket list.”

Andrew looked up from his tablet. Intrigued, he asked, “What’s on your list?”

Mali met Andrew’s gaze, “Getting busy in a very public place.”

“We can do that right now. What else?”

“No electronics.”

“We can do that, too. I thought your list had crazy, unattainable things.”

She thought for a moment and said, “Dance with Beyoncé! Her security would boot us before we get a glimpse of her. Oooh! And shadow Oprah for a day!”

“I’ll make some calls.”


Thanks for reading.
