Flash Fiction Friday - Cat out of the Bag #FFF

Happy Friday, folks. This picture just screamed at me when we were given it. In fact, I wish I had more words... Anyhoo, enjoy, I hope :-)

To see the picture inspiration please click here.

John heard his father’s ravings before he’d even made it into the hall, and their old housekeeper winced as something hit the solid oak door of the old man’s study.
“He’s in a foul mood after seeing the papers. Perhaps you should come back tomorrow, Johnny.”
He shook his head, and twisted his wedding ring.
“No, this is long overdue, and really not the way I wanted to tell him, but—“
The door flung open and his father’s fury hit him straight in the gut, as he threw the papers in John’s face.

“How fucking dare you? Get out.”

  5. It is a hot topic and perhaps the 'reveal' could have been handled a little better, but we would have missed all this wonderful drama. This is a very engaging flash. xo

  7. So tense and hot. I wonder how he told his father, but I think by the papers he already found out. Great flasher! Would love to be the fly on that wall.
