Flash Fiction: The Repo Property Had Potential and Good Vibrations

Fiction has its heart in the truth. Fiction has its own truths which can get tangled and twisted. even in only 99 words.

The Ford Ranger bounced down the road

“Ouch!” Elane rubbed her head.

Aging middle-class homes on small acreages  turned their backsides to the street to capture the spectacular view of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Towards the middle of the road, the county placed a sign, “End of County Maintained Road.” 

Elane laughed, “Maintained?”

Todd steered the Ranger in the driveway. They got out and let down the tailgate. Dangling their legs they stared at the dilapidated bungalow with the bank repossession sign. 

“New three-car garage,” Todd said.

“Three-foot high weeds!” Elane said.

“It’s got good vibes,” they said together.

June 18, 2020, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story that includes good vibrations. What is unfolding? Is someone giving off or receiving the feeling? Where is the story situated? Gather some good vibes and go where the prompt leads!

    1. Exactly. Since this is what happened when my husband and I found our house, it’s borderline for fiction. The conversations are fiction but the descriptions are not. I don’t have a sharp enough imagination to visualize without reality. 🙂 Is that something you can learn?
