The opening sentence for the January 8th Flash Fiction for the Purposeful Practitioner: “It seemed a good idea at the time?”


“IT SEEMED A GOOD IDEA AT THE TIME, but we should have moved his interrogation to a different location,” Grant complained.

“Don’t worry about it, we will just have to work with what we have,” Boris said.

“Sure! We can barely see down here in this dungeon of a cellar and now two more lights have gone out!”

“I said, don’t worry about it.  We can use the darkness to our advantage.  I’ll get him out of the closet and we can get started.”

“Sit down Mr. Knox,” Boris commanded.  “Tell us where you were between 10 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. last night.”

“Why are you calling me Mr. Knox?”

“Just answer the question or I will have to force the answer out of you!”

“You’re crazy!  Let me out of here!  You had no right to bring me down here.”

“Be quiet or I’ll have to use my brass knuckles on you.”

“I’ll get them for you,” Grant said.

“No!  Stop it!  Why are you doing this?”

The cellar door opens and floods the room with light.

“Boys! Come on upstairs, it’s time for dinner,” their mother yells.

  1. That was cute. I wasn’t expecting the Mom to call them for dinner, I thought something bad was going on, not a game. Great suspense and twist.
