My Friend Fred

by Ogden

(Please read my personal note below after reading this)

What the heck was he doing in my bathtub? Fred's my best friend, and a practical joker, but this disturbed me. I said, "Cut it out Fred! Get out of the tub, and stop clowning." He wasn't looking well. He never had a tail fin or claws before.

Now what?

50 Word Flash Fiction writing prompt entry
Writing Prompt
Write a story that is a dribble. That's 50 words. Title not included in count.

I can't keep Fred here much longer. The girls are both waiting for a shower, and they're very modest. He's not a problem, but if anyone has an extra bathroom for rent, please get in touch with me. He doesn't eat much for his size. Just throw him a fish or two every few hours.

No cats, please. Fred never liked cats. (And to add insult to injury, now they would steal his fish.)

Pays one point and 2 member cents.
