Flash fiction Friday: ‘Why Molly Gagged’


Below is my submission for this past week’s 53-Word Contest #16 by Press53, a Winston-Salem, N.C., based book publisher. Read the winning submission here.

Why Molly Gagged

Molly bragged: “I know where mobsters hide.” Her friends chastised: “Stop watching ‘The Sopranos.’” So Molly walked to an abandoned brewery. At windows, Molly filmed mobsters severing a police detective’s finger, which fell to the floor. A fly inspected the finger. Gagging, Molly stole the mobsters’ car to flee, regretting she had bragged.
