And the Words: “I have to remind myself to breathe – almost to remind my heart to beat!” – Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte

➰➰➰➰➰➰➰

It is freezing. I’m shivering despite the fur coat I’m wearing. I feel like even my breath is frozen. I have to remind myself to breathe – almost to remind my heart to beat! I’m afraid that my nose would just fall off in this cold.

Everyone who knew of my plan to accompany my husband to this expedition to the North Pole had told me that it wasn’t a place for a woman, but I wanted to see it for myself so badly. But what a view it is. I wouldn’t miss it for the world. I’m glad I came.

JusJoJan January 8 2021- Twisted

Linda is the host of JusJoJan

Twisted

“Haha, I love your twisted sense of humor”, Carla said laughingly. In her heart, she cursed that sick sense of humor her husband was so proud of. Why would he make these jokes at the expense of their family or friends and think it was funny. It wasn’t just him, their teenage son Josh was also developing the same streak. Very often, she and her daughter Amy would exchange rueful glances when both the father and son were making fun of some unfortunate soul.

Then karma struck a beautiful blow! Jim, her husband, was given a promotion and was transferred to another department in the same office. His boss was notorious for ragging and making fun of others. Spending 8 – 10 hours in his company made Jim realize that the way he uses friends as his target for jokes was really bad because now he was the butt of most of his boss’s jokes!

JusJoJan- January 3 2021- Servant

Linda is the host of JusJoJan

Your servant ma’am!

Jefferson bowed politely before stepping back and letting Jane pass. She was overwhelmed by the attention and courtesy shown to her at her uncle’s home. Jefferson was a young associate of his late uncle and was being very attentive.

Today her uncle’s will was to be read. A few relatives that she had, had been informed of this event. They all were gathered here.

As the lawyer finished reading the will, Jane sat there as if turned to stone. She was an heiress! She couldn’t believe it.

Now the excessive attention of Jefferson started to make sense. He must have an ax to grind. All the family was fawning over her too. Jane made a decision, she would get her mom to come as stay with her. At least, she could be trusted.

“Now you’ve done it!

I specifically told you to drill a hole in the front wall. So that I can attach this planter securely, and you went and made this huge hole in the back wall where the neighbors can look into our yard. And we can see into theirs.

Next time I’ll do it myself”.

“Dad!

Mr. Robinson is at the front door. He wants a word with you. He seems angry!”

excuses, find her. She holds the key to our survival” came the answer to her request.

M/748 didn’t know where else she should look. Passing a bookstore, she suddenly came face to face with a large poster bearing her likeness. She went into the store. The photo was displayed on the new book, launched that very day.

She bought a copy and discovered that this was a mythical girl who was supposed to save the universe. The high command in her planet had their lines crossed and had read a preview of this story and took it as a true fact.

She wondered how she can break the news to them!

It was a classic setting, the building was perfectly reflected in the water. It would make a beautiful photograph. But Amy wanted to paint the scene and it just didn’t come out right. The canvas was waiting but she wasn’t able to draw what she was seeing in her mind’s eye.

“Splat”

The bird flying overhead made a big mess on her canvas.

She looked at it in horror and then she was struck with an idea.

She would just do an impressionist painting!

It was a total disaster.

Nothing could save them now.

Jollie tried to calm her wildly beating heart and shaking hands.

Thick black smoke was obscuring her sight and the stench was enough to make her gag.

The dinner was burned, and the guests were due any moment.

It was an apocalypse!

Welcome to “Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge.”

The invasion of privacy was unacceptable. How dare they come into my bathroom when I was enjoying my relaxing soak. To say I was upset would be an understatement. I was livid and in my anger, I let off a stream of angry words which I regretted the next day. And to top insult with injury, they took a photo of me too. What is the world coming to?

Now I see myself in all my gingerbread glory pasted all over the social media sites. This is a high price to pay for stardom.

I think I will sue those pesky reporters.

“Don’t look up, don’t look up” Pete repeated the silent mantra in his heart.

Meanwhile, Wally kept searching and looking for him everywhere. Just then a crow flying overhead cawed. Wally looked up and spotted Pete on the light pole, poised and balanced precariously. Ready to jump on Wally’s head and give him the fright of his life!

“Got you!”

“Now you better come down from there before mom comes home “, Wally scolded the naughty imp and took him down and took him inside.

~*~*~

Finding the rusted wreck of an old jeep by the sand dunes was what broke open that case. For years the mystery of Fred’s disappearance was unsolved but when the waves washed in his old Jeep, the police at least knew that he had died. Now they had to find who was responsible for his untimely death.

Mandy gave the game away when she was trying to leave the island with all her belongings in an unseemly hurry. Luckily, the cops had kept an eye on her activities since she had come into the large inheritance as Fred’s widow.
