Flasher – Holiday Surprise
A flasher is a very short story about 200 words in length. Although they are short, they are still supposed to convey some amount of character development and plot.
“Sir?” Her voice was soft, slightly quivering.
He raised an eyebrow at her over his morning paper. She stood in the kitchen, hands clasped in front of her, wearing nothing but a thong and a few fading bruises on her ass from the night before.
She walked forward and knelt next to his chair. “I was a naughty girl last night, Sir.”
He folded his paper. “Really? You know Santa doesn’t like naughty girls. What did you do?”
She looked up at him, eyes wide, lips invitingly pouty. “Last night I…investigated some of the presents under the tree.”
“Hmm. You know I asked you not to touch them till Christmas.”
She looked down. “Yes, but I wanted to know what was in them.”
He tsked disapprovingly. “Go on.”
“Well, I was shaking them gently to feel how heavy they were and…one of them started shaking back.”
He sighed, chuckling. “Ahh, I knew I should have removed the batteries before wrapping it.” He stood up, reaching out to help her to her feet. Gripping her hand tightly, he led her to the living room. “Well, I guess for you, Christmas will come a little early.”
