Friday Fictioneers: A Dealer Named Godfrey

Welcome to Friday Fictioneers where each week close to 100 people participate in a flash fiction challenge based on a photo prompt.

And now my 100 word story:

Elizabeth sat in her SUV with the motor running and doors locked. She looked nervously around keeping an eye out for Godfrey. ‘Godfrey”, she thought, “what a name for a drug dealer”.

Just as she finished that thought there he was tapping on her passenger window. She flipped the lock and let him in. Godfrey climbed in and rubbed his hands together in front of the heater. “It’s cold out there”.

“Yes” was all Elizabeth would say. She wasn’t interested in conversation. She wanted what she came for so she could get back home before her sleeping husband noticed she was gone.

  1. Ooh . . . something amiss is definitely afoot. Good story, Dawn. I hope the pickup is successful. I also hope Elizabeth’s husband does miss her so he can get her into rehab before another pickup is less successful.

    All my best,
    Marie Gail


    • That’s a good point Marie Gail. I have been crazy busy today and was mulling this story around while running errands, etc. When I finally started typing I got up to 200 words before i knew it. It could be better if I wasn’t in a hurry to post before my work week begins in 1.5 hours, which reminds me…I gotta go!
      Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Dear Dawn,

    “What’s that, Honey? No, I just went to the shop for an alignment…”

    What a great story revolving around Godfrey’s unlikely name. Well done.




  3. Oh good lordy! First she parks at that place in the middle of the night then she lets that man actually get into her car? Elizabeth needs help. That Godfrey is no William Powell!


    • There is so much heroin addiction today and i was trying to show a different side. Of course a lot was lost in editing and I was crunched for time this week so I’m not really pleased with the final draft but there is always next week to shine. I’ll try then.
