A flash of fiction …

for Friday Fictioneers.


ROSEY LARGE BWPMy friend Rosey, some mates and I were at the pub when in swaggered leather-clad Biker Bob.

“Got a new machine”  he proudly announced. “Come see”.

We followed him outside. 

“Dah-dah!” he cried, gesticulating proudly. 

Immediately, Rosey requested a ride! Bob tossed her a crash helmet. 

“I can’t see,” shouted Rosey putting it on back to front!

Bob climbed astride and fired it up and we hoisted Rosey onto the throbbing pillion saddle. “Ooh, this feels good!” she chuckled!

Bob revved the engine, released the clutch and shot away … as Rosey tumbled backwards into our arms!

Not seen him since.

    Poor Rosie – but she always manages to survive – no doubt with a huge smile on her profile … as she faced her catchers! Cheers Hilary

    Rosey never ever disappoints. Thanks for the good laugh and the little mind-movie.

    Oh, the memory of my first (and only actually) motor bike ride (mopeds didn’t count and there were two instances of those). I was trussed up in leggings, jacket, scarf, gloves and crash helmet. They had to hoist me on the wall then bring the bike alongside to get me aboard, but oh the thrill!!!

    Probably just as well for Rosey. Very cool froggy-harley graphic this week, Keith!

    Rosey does everything with style . . . her unique style, of course.

    Dear Keith,

    Rosey provides hours of free entertainment, doesn’t she? Thank you for the morning chuckle.

      When I’m stuck for a story, I just think Rosey and up one pops! Thanks Rochelle.

    Any adult male who swaggers deserves to disappear into the fog. Swaggering something you expect to see in little boys, not grown men. And that is my .
    sour[puss comment on a perfectly delightful story. Shame on me.

    Poor Rosey, her dream dash to freedom and a new life with Biker Bob landed on its backside. I don’t think Bob was ready for her antics, hence was never seen again. Oh Well, lets have another fresh beer in the pub.

    Got a little carried away, did he? Still I’m glad Rosey is still with us. I’d honestly miss her!

    Love the ending. Very funny. That’s what I would want to happen if it was my daughter.

    I must thank you for the efforts you’ve put in penning this blog. I’m hoping to see the same high-grade blog posts by you later on as well. In truth, your creative writing abilities has encouraged me to get my very own website now 😉
