A Twist Of Noir 564 - Jim Harrington

GOLDILOCKS IS BUSY IN THE GETAWAY CAR - JIM HARRINGTON

Originally published in February 2010 at The Legendary

Goldilocks. That maggot. Where is he? Probably bare-assed screwing Cinnamon. She’s a damned gluttonous piranha. Shouldn’t have brought her this time. Doesn’t realize friendship is stronger than pussy. Don’t know what to do now. Cops are outside, guns drawn. Goldilocks is the lookout. Bull-horned voice roars. Don’t shoot. Screwed.

BIO: Jim discovered flash fiction in 2007, and he’s read, written, studied, and agonized over the form since. His Six Questions For... blog provides editors and publishers a place to “tell it like it is.” In his spare time, he serves as the flash fiction editor for Apollo’s Lyre.

Jim, I must have just read that half a dozen times and found something different each. One paragraph. Carumba!

Armageddon in a phone booth. Scarface in a bell jar. I like your little fren'. Flash, now that's the way you do it! More. Please.

Jim--
As usual, WoW.
Every word packs a punch. I'll never think o Goldilocks the same way again...
