#FlashFictionFriday – 10-Nov-2017 – Misadventures with Andy and Grant

Flash Fiction Friday


Misadventures with Andy and Grant - dreamstime_xxl_96542617Today’s Flash Fiction Friday scene uses the three words left in the comments of last week’s post:

butter – bees – bromance 😁

Since this is now the third scene I’ve written featuring the characters Andy and Grant, I’ve moved them from the Random Standalone Flash Fiction page to their own shiny new Misadventures with Andy and Grant page.

Check out the menu, above, or click these links for all my bonus scene and flash fiction options.

Told from Andy’s 3rd-person POV:

 


Misadventures with Andy and Grant – Bromance?

“It’s not a bromance when you acknowledge that you want to sleep with the guy. That’s more like…I don’t know…unrequited love?”

“What are you, the grammar police?” Andy crossed his arms, instantly regretting the peevish tone of his reply, but the incessant tapping of Grant’s foot was getting on his last nerve.

“Just because things fell apart between you and dreamy Daniel, and you didn’t end up married with two-point-five kids and a hefty mortgage, doesn’t give you the right to get bitchy with me.”

Grant needed a lesson on the birds and the bees, but that was beside the point. “What does Daniel have to do with anything? I was over him a long time ago.”

“Whatever.” At least Grant quit tapping that sparkly boot on the floor. But, if the way he pursed his lips was any clue, Grant was the one still mooning over Daniel. Speaking of unrequited love.

“I don’t think he even knows,” Andy said. “And I have no idea how to tell him.”

“Take him out. Wine and dine him. Butter him up.”

Andy snorted as a more literal vision than Grant had intended flashed through his mind.

“You know what I mean,” Grant said. “Who is this joker, anyway? Anyone I know?”

“If I go for it, you’ll be the first to know.”

“Oh, come on…”

Andy glanced at his watch. “I’m hungry. Want to go get something to eat?”

Leave as many prompt words as you like in the comments, but I’ll only promise to use one from each contributor in next week’s post (although I’ll try to use them all).

  1. Awesome! And gold star for including “grammar police” 😁😁 And yay for a shiny new Andy and Grant page! I look forward to reading more about them 🙂

    Words for next week: whiskey, laundry and electric guitar (three things I can see from where I’m currently sitting 😁)
