FRIDAY FLASH Fiction- 3/23

(This is flash fiction adapted from Samantha Lovern’s Free Fiction.)

Martin Harrison sat in his study reading the latest script from his agent. He had until New Year’s Day to make up his mind, and the set wouldn’t start filming until March. The film was called The Lion and the Lamb, and he could see himself playing the male lead, Rory. 

He didn’t like the fact the director was a bit green; he’d only worked on three films so far and Martin didn’t like his track record. With the family coming in for Christmas and Celia, his girlfriend, having such distaste for his acting career, he wasn’t sure he’d be able to make up his mind until after the holidays.

Still not sure of what he would do, he opened the envelope to read the amount the role would pay.

He looked up, as there was a tapping on the door. “Come in.”

It was his loyal head maid, Emma.

He motioned her over and held out the paper. “You may have to pinch me, if I’m seeing those numbers correctly.”

Emma looked at the paper, laughed, and handed it back. “Your eyes are fine, and, if those numbers ring true, you might actually not be broke after Celia gets finished decorating the house in green.”

  1. This made me laugh. I think it could be expanded into a longer story.
