55 - Sorry, We're Closed

Sorry, we're closed today. You came here looking for quaint country charm; oddments to show off to your friends back home. "Just look at these bottles and crockery shards. Poor rustics had no idea what they were worth. I bought them for a song."

Well, your money counts for nothing here today. Sorry, we're closed.











About Friday Flash 55: The challenge is to write a complete story in fifty-five words or less. If you've written a 55-flash, go let The G-Man know!

In the kind of worlds you create, that Closed sign could be permanent.
