2014 Flash Fiction Challenge: Headmaster


Angela Juarez, the cutest girl in school. When I reached to tug her hair, a hand fell heavy on my shoulder. The headmaster dragged me away by the ear. “Let’s talk,” he said.


Prompt: Open the book you are reading right now (or a favourite if you aren’t reading anything, oh, and shame on you!), turn to page 33 (or 33% on e-readers) and write a super flash fiction about the first proper noun (person, place or thing) on the page! Word count is 500 as usual, but feel free to use 33 as your word count for this week!!

The book is by William Trevor
A Bit on the Side
The first proper noun on page 33 is “Headmaster”

Once again – rising to the gauntlet thrown down by the 2014 Flash Fiction Challenge
