The Idea

by  raymond alexander kukkee

Lilies    (c)  r.a.kukkee 2012

The three popular girls swaggered down the sidewalk chattering  like chickens scrabbling for tossed corn. Curvy  denims wagged happily as they passed gawky boys.
"I have an idea! "  
Ears perked up. Lisa was the quiet one.
"Let's go to the limestone quarry and go skinny-dipping".

"Skinny-dipping! We can't do that! Samantha said solemnly. She rolled her eyes.
 "Why not?  Are you boys listening? "Lisa  called out, teasing wickedly.
"Boys?  No.... I have a better idea..." Samantha giggled.
Lisa smiled smugly, admiring some lilies. 

"The Idea" is flash fiction inspired by the  M3 Flash Fiction Challenge.  The limit for July is 150 words.  "The Idea" easily meets Red's  challenge with 85 words.

Is that Incoming I hear?


  1. Flash fiction, what fun! Good one here Raymond :)

    1. Thanks, Christyb! It's always helpful to get great compliments ":) ~R

  2. Am I the only one who doesn't get this story?
    Sorry Raymond.

    1. hi Conny, I guess that's always possible, no need to apologize! ":) Writers of fiction have to leave the interpretation of any story line to the reader. Don't you think 'Getting it' is a personal interpretation? Thanks for dropping in! ":) ~R

  3. Great Flash! I am not good at fiction myself so I tend to stay away from it.

    1. hi CYW ! Thanks! It's great to see you! YOUR work is wonderful, I LOVE it! I laugh when I read it. Comic books appeal to me...and really, It's just a different form of fiction--and with the artwork, it is so CUTE! Seriously, it really IS a different form of flash fiction and you are good at it! I REALLY enjoy reading you! Your weird sense of humor somehow strikes a chord in my weird mind--and the funny-bone. ":) ~R

  4. Conny, you are not alone. I don't get it either. I fail miserably at flash fiction of this level of brevity.

  5. Glory, you're not alone either. Obscurity of story line is common with flash fiction. I may revise..or maybe not. Thanks for bringing up this issue again ":) ~R
