Crazy Situations #flashfiction

April 16, 2020, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story about something crazy. Laugh like crazy, show the setting of stir-crazy or go off the rails on a crazy train. Have fun with the word and the situation, but go where the prompt leads!

If you’d like to read the whole story so far, click on ‘The Newlyweds‘ on the menu bar at the top of my blog.

    1. I think just one big crazy story, Liesbet. I feel it’s time for one of our characters to kick the bucket. Unless the next prompt says otherwise. We’ll soon find out.

    1. Thank you for both comments, Donna. I’m glad you’re enjoying this story. I have an ever so slightly different version of it devolving too. You can read it in one place by clicking on ‘The Newlyweds’ on the menu bar of my blog.

  1. That’s a triple-decker crazy, Hugh. I wonder where Charli will take them next week. You’re maintaining the suspense in this story well.
