Chuck Wendig Flash Fiction Challenge - the numbers game in 100 words.

The numbers game. Bishop, Lollipop, Blister.

'Bishop McAuley was parish priest in Fethard when I was a boy' Malcolm said
concentrating on injecting a tiny drop of fluid into the blister pack of
the strawberry lollipop I was holding for him.

'You knew him quite well then.' I said '

'You could say that'

'What if he shares his lollipops with his latest...........boy?' I

'He never shares and he always has one sticking out his big fat gob.'

I'm going to send him on the trip of a life time.' Finally Malcolm smiled.


  1. This was hard for me to read with the strange punctuation. I had to read it twice to figure out what was going on.

  2. Hi Lindsay,
    I am thrilled and delighted you with your comment. I like reading your flash fiction pieces for terrible minds even though they scare the hell out of me a lot of the time.

  3. Hi Sarah, Thanks for taking the time to comment. I'll be more careful with my punctuation in future.

  4. Am I terrible for silently cheering a little for Malcolm? lol - great twisted stuff!
