Flash Fiction

“Look what you made me do.”

“What I made you do...”

“Yes, you.”

“How’d you come up with that theory?”

“If you hadn’t dragged me there I never would have done it.”

“I dragged you there?”

“Yes, I wanted to go to the movie, remember?”

“You wanted to go see Crambo Three which isn’t out till next week, so when we found that out, you didn’t want to go to the movies anymore.”

“But I didn’t want to go to Pinsky’s.”

“You told me to pick anywhere. Your word ‘anywhere.’”

“But you picked Pinsky’s...”

“But I didn’t know you had a beef with Ray Pratt, nor that Ray Pratt would be at Pinsky’s, nor that you were an idiot.”

“I’m not an idiot.”

“Only an idiot would walk up behind a guy and sucker punch him before he even knew you were there, and think it was going to end well.”

“He stole my girl, and he’s bigger than me.”

“If your girl went out with him behind your back, she wasn’t really your girl, was she...”


“Well, the details are why I have to bail you out of jail right now. And you better not make me sorry if I do!”

“I won’t. You can bring me over to Pinsky’s”

“I will not! I’m not losing my bail money because you’re an idiot! Besides Ray wouldn’t still be there, it’s probably not even open yet.”

“Doesn’t matter, Ray owns it, he’s my cousin. I have a key.”

“Sherriff! Stick him back in the cell... I’ve had enough.”
