Thanks to Rach Writes we have a second crusader challenge, ending March 25. This time we have to write a flash fiction piece of 100 words starting with the words - "The goldfish bowl teetered...". Rach also suggests that we write in the genre we used when we signed up as a crusader. I signed up in two groups - Romantic Suspense and Romance. No romance at the beginning, but who knows where this story might end:
The goldfish bowl teetered on the edge of the display table. Rosie spun around to see a flood of water splattering onto the tiled floor. She tried to grab the lip of the bowl, but too late. The whole shebang went crashing – the greenery, the little pebbles, the pump and the surprised-looking goldie.
“What the hell have you done now, loser?”Rosie hung her head. The goldfish was gasping for air, riding the low tide, swimming to the front door and freedom.
“Loser!”No, I’m a winner, she chuckled to herself as she slammed the door behind her.
