Fiction Writing Challenge – #FridayFotoFiction Oct27-Nov1 Prompt


The Buddy – Flash Fiction Writing – #FridayFotoFiction

“Get in the car Bruno….”

Ohh.. the car!

He pulled up his wrist to check the time, the familiar Bulgari has been replaced.

He turned around to have a look.

My buddy for 6 years! Have to say bye now!

Picking up the morning paper from the porch, he sat down on the steps to give a read before leaving.

I had started this company at 23. Success, triumph, wealth, women weren’t too hard to get. There’s no one who could stand up in my competition. Yet!

Memories of earlier days with Jim flashed by. Jim, his buddy. The friend who reduced him to this state.

His only fault – he had completely trusted Jim.

‘Billionaire Joe Salter ousted from his company – his net worth dwindled to zero’- said the headlines of the newspaper.

    That was a good take on the photo prompt. I just hope that Karma has a field day when it gets to Jim.:)

    This was the first idea I had in mind too when I saw the photo, but changed it after reading yours. I think this is the second time we’ve had the exact same story in mind 🙂
