Flash Fiction for the Purposeful Practitioner


 

Taxi wasn’t his preferred method of travel, but it would do in a pinch. And this was the pinch of all pinches. If he didn’t get there in time, he’d be on the couch for the rest of his natural life.

The taxi driver glanced in the rear-view mirror, but he ignored the look.  Too bad if the man felt threatened. Everybody had a gun these days and most would use them just for the fun of it. He didn’t have time to explain he wasn’t one of those nor did he even own a gun. Let the man sweat. Might get him there faster.

As the cab screeched to the cub, he leapt out, tossing two fifties to the driver. Rushed into the building, collapsing into a chair just as she walked in.

“Almond coconut or chocolate chip?” he asked breathlessly.

To his relief, she smiled.
