Help #flashprompt #hurricanerelief #flash4storms

Sarah Brentyn has created a super-short flash prompt and asked us to join in; by so doing she will commit to give money to the hurricane relief funds. 50 words using the prompt ‘Help’. Go on, pop over and have a go.

To Boris, his sister was useless, a financial drain, and magnet for dullard boyfriends. Until the fan-belt snapped on the old Merc on the way to his wedding. Gawping, he watched as she hitched her one-piece, unclipped a stocking and tied it in place. β€˜Even useless boyfriends have their uses.’

  4. Thank you so much for your help in a flash. ❀ Much appreciated. And I absolutely love your take on 'help'. So much emotion, history, and attitude in so few words. With a fun in-your-face twist.
