One Man’s Prank is Another Man’s Reality – Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers – 06/27/17

FFfAW062717 Pete licked his lips as his mind raced considering his grand scheme. He had battled with his next door neighbor, Watson for years, each of them escalating their pranks. It was time to go full on over the top and Pete saw his chance in the form of the huge alien.

“Seriously Pete?” Jennifer, his wife asked.

“Yes Jen. You know how he is always going on about aliens coming to get him. Two of these in his yard on Halloween night will be priceless.”

Two months later the stage was set as Pete laid out an elaborate scene with the two “aliens” prominently featured.

He knew Watson would not get home from his job in Siler City until just after dark. He watched with surging enthusiasm as Watson’s car rolled into view. The car stopped in the street, his neighbor slowly exiting to determine what he saw.

“No, you promised I could stay five more years! I won’t go, no matter how much you torture me!” Watson screamed.
