It’s Not Fair #flashfiction

January 16, 2019, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a protest story. It can be about a protest, or you can investigate the word and expand the idea. Who is protesting, where, and why? Go where the prompt leads!

“It’s not fair,” protested Mike, as he paced up and down his hotel room. “One of them should have been here by now.”

He hated the thought of the newlyweds sleeping together.


Two floors above, while holding an oversized pillow in his hands, Doug angrily protested to his new wife that she had probably cheated on him. “It’s not fair; how can you have wanted to sleep with somebody else and not me?”


“It’s not fair,” Sophie quietly protested to herself, while looking somewhat worryingly at her husband. “That spiked drink I gave you should have worked by now.”

Written in response to the 99-word flash fiction challenge hosted by Charli Mills at the Carrot Ranch.
