Today I am participating in Glitter Lady’s Tuesday Tales. Tuesday Tales is a Flash Fiction challenge consisting of 100 words based on a picture and word Stevie (Ms. Glitter Lady) posts to her Tuesday Tales page.
Attached to my blog is the picture Glitter Lady provided. The word she picked is legion.
:: That Place
“Dana, we’re stuck.” Ken said.
She knew they waited too long to leave for the cabin. The snow storm hit hard and fast. They were too late. The road through town was closed.
“But, the only thing around is that place, and I can’t go into that place. What if –“
“It’s just the American Legion Hall. We’ll be OK. I promise.”
She was haunted by the nightmares and terrorized by the screaming and yelling.
She grabbed Ken’s jacket and screamed.
“What is it?”
She couldn’t speak. Fear gripped her. Shaking and crying, she pointed to the sign. Bingo Night

Bravo! 100 brilliantly collected words!
Thank you, Linda. I appreciate your support and encouragement.
Very good, had to laugh at the Bingo Night at the end. 😀
Glad you had a laugh, Mags. Thanks for reading.
haha, I didn’t see bingo coming. At all. You’re too funny, LD!
This was a tough one. I knew I wanted to use legion as a place, but I also had to give it a ‘scary’ twist. Dark and scary themes are not my areas of expertise. I enjoy reading that stuff – but I ain’t smart enough to rite it. (Ha! Kidding. On the spellings, I mean.)
You made me laugh! Exactly what I needed!
I am so glad I made you laugh, Kathie! And, I am glad my timing was good.
I hope the laugh carries you through the week. Thank you so much for reading. I greatly appreciate it.
LOL I didn’t see that coming, either.
I like all these comments about not seeing the end coming. Thank you, Patti!
Ha! 🙂 Lenore you ended it brilliantly. You are too good with this form of writing.
Thank you, Arindam. I enjoy the challenge.
Kudos, Lenore! The unexpected climax made for a good story.
Blessings – Maxi
Glad you liked it, Maxi. Thank you for the ‘kudos’.
Haha! Bingo night is a scary thought!
It’s frightening, Bridget! The stuff of nightmares! 🙂
Well done, Lenore! You have such a knack for these flash fiction bites.
Thank you, Jackie. Your compliments are extra special. I appreciate the feedback.
Lenore! That was so well done! Your ending surprised me completely…I was not expecting it.
Woo hoo! 🙂 Thanks, Amy. These challenges are fun, even if I don’t win.
Hehehehe. Thanks, Amy. One has to have an appreciation for Legion Halls to get it, I think.
