Flash Fiction 55. 4th. February 2011

G-Man invites all writers, including the maladjusted and the terminally confused, to write a 55 word story -

Breaking News.

"Pheidippides! Run the 26 miles to Athens. Tell them the Greeks walloped Persia in the Battle of Marathon.  Got that?"
 "On my way, Captain!"
 So Pheidippides ran, arriving, reeling with fatigue in Athens, 2 hrs. 24 mins later.
 "What news, Stout Pheidippides?"
 "F**k!  I've forgotten the message. 'Ang on, I'll nip back”

2 hrs. 24 mins was a pretty good time for 490BC!

Thank you for stopping by. To make life easier for you I have turned off the new indecipherable and time-wasting verification words. Would you care to "feedback" to Blogger and complain about them, like I did?
