Early Fridays...



  OK, all...here it is, Friday again. Where does the time go ?? Write  flashing piece of fiction , 55 words only, and then go taunt G-man with it!  hahahahahahaha....Here's mine!


The strains of a piece of melancholy jazz wafted through the empty apartment. Resisting the urge to change the station , he understood instantly why she’d gone.  The jazz was speaking to him…subtly, seductively. He started to nod, imperceptibly, to the sounds. Nothing here but music now, Charlie Parker washing the dirt from his soul.

Tuned in to the music and tuned out to her? That would never do. Nice piece of writing here. Leaves some things to imagination and leads us on a small journey. Nice.

(Hi there. I'm new to this 55-word thing, but now that I've found it, you'll see me around.)

I really like this. It's amazing what a picture you can paint with only 55 words.

Sad, but really makes you think. I hope Charlie's jazz can clean his soul so he can win her back before it's too late...

Great 55!
