Monday’s Finish the Story: Panicked

2015-03-16-bw-beachamContinuation of last week

A body suddenly crashed through a plate glass window at the Brigadier’s house. One of the ladies fell out of her chair while the rest frantically scrambled and fled. The men remained seated, not wanting to move. 

“I told you not to panic.” Gregory said shaking his head and pinching the bridge of his nose. “We could’ve just knocked. But no, you had to go all frantic and fly through the window.”

Johan bore his teeth in an awkward smile. The planes were driving him crazy these days. A few minutes ago, they were hidden in the bushes outside and then an airplane flew by and Johan immediately switched to panic mode and dove into the house.

“It’s okay, ladies.” Gregory addressed the ladies still frantically fleeing the room. “My boy here just panicked. We don’t mean to scare you.”

One of the ladies dipped her head and examined Gregory and Johan. She chuckled. “Oh, is that your boy? They’re big these days, aren’t they?” She turned to the other ladies. “It’s alright, ladies. Let’s get back to the game.”

One of the men coughed. “About time.”

Each week, Mondays Finish the Story challenges our minds by providing with a picture along with the first sentence for us to finish the flash fiction with 100 -150 words based on the picture above.  Did I mention these are old ladies and men in the middle of a bingo game? Poor panicky Johan must had scared them to death.

    1. Apparently they’d been traveling. They got out of the car and prepared to look for refuge in this large villa when a plane flew by, Johan freaked and dove into the bushes and so did Gregory. They hid there until it was gone and stepped out of the bush just as another one approached. Johan panicked and dove into the window.

  1. Great continuation, it made me laugh! The two characters you have created work brilliantly together, and Johan definitely knows how to make an entrance.
    Reminds me of something from a Carry On film.
