I decide to go with humour this week for Whisper for Five Sentence Fiction over at lilliemcferrin.com/five-sentence-fiction-whisper/ . I think my previous piece for a humorous Zombie Flash has started something. xx
The First day
It wasn’t what Rosie had expected on her first day as manager as she had been promised that her sudden rise wouldn't affect friendships; she had earned it after all with her ‘Superwoman’ tag and attitude to work and getting things done.
She’d even brought in cupcakes that she had made to celebrate with her staff and friends as well as extending their lunch break, seeing as they had gone to so much effort with Good Luck cards and wanting to toast the first day.
Since lunch, there were whisperings, sniggerings and dropped eyes every time Rosie walked by and now her nerves were so frayed with the thought that something bad was going to happen that she couldn’t leave her office, especially when her colleagues started to randomly do impressions of Superman.
Rosie watched her colleagues who continued to laugh even when she met prospective clients and too her amazement, even they began to laugh but not so discreetly.
“I’m sorry” began the older of the two clients, trying to stifle his laugh “but . . . . . er . . . . . your skirt is . . . . . er . . . . . . tucked in your . . . . . er . . . . . Superman knickers.”
And there it is. Hop over to lilliemcferrin for more 5SF stories. xx
