But She Died

Flash Fiction 55
Friday 55 Flash Fiction is brought to you by G-man (Mr Knowitall). The idea is you write a story in exactly 55 words. If you want to take part pop over and let G-man know when you've posted your 55.Here is today's story:

They saw her fall from the high cliff.
They saw the raging river carry her body away.
Her body was never found but she was dead.
They were so sure they held a beautiful memorial service.

But now he saw her waking on the street.
Certainly that is impossible unless this is
a soap opera.

Since I discovered it was okay I am writing a second flash 55 which will be a continuous story but a complete story every week. Here then is the eighteenth chapter in the exciting ongoing adventures of Sir Laughsalot and Robberhood
The entire story to date is HERE
The most recent chapters are HERE
Moreless the Wizard covered him with a protective spell so Sir Laughsalot got on his horse and went to fight the witch.
The witch screamed her spell at him but it had no effect . His horse, however, turned into a large frog.
He cut off her head.
He couldn't ride a frog but he tried.

Of course the dragons were busy today you can see them HERE.

LOL...on both 55's. You are so right about the soap operas. Too funny. I watch All My Children every day and it's so true she could come back to life. LOL. And that Sir Laughsalot...had me rolling. It was excellent...especially when he tried to ride the frog. Sounds like something that should be entered in the Pigeon Falls Talent Contest :)

Soap operas, ha, I suppose you are right. The last one I watched was Dark Shadows, many years ago.

hahaha, too true. soaps require a suspension of ALL disbelief in order for their plots to make any sense. even then it's a stretch.

Ah, Dr. John, lol...funny 55 about Sir Laughsalot and his horse/frog. And some whacky things happen on soap operas, that's for sure. Have a wonderful weekend with your Grandchildren. :)

If it's a soap, she can die be reborn or come back as a twin sister. Hehe! Nicely done.

LOL yes anything can happen in a soap opera and usually does! Do you remember when Bobby Ewing died then appeared in the shower???? :0

G-Man said...

Oh Doc...Always with the surprise!
Thank you for this excellent 55.
Thanks for the support.
Thanks for the brilliance.
Have a Wonderful Week-End...G

Perhaps she was getting written out of the story, but the directors changed their minds.

Glad you found the time for this!

Soaps - anything and everything goes. The worst soap trick is for everything to have been a dream.

I expect that it would be difficult to ride a frog! :P
