Carrot Ranch Flash Fiction Challenge. An Order for Nanjo Castille

Flash Fiction. Order for Nanjo Castille

I have become determined to overcome my fear Flash Fiction, by continuing to practice! Over at the Carrot Ranch, Charli hosts a weekly prompt. This week’s one is very unusual and definitely appealed to my sense of the ridiculous!  Please go over there and check out the story behind this week’s prompt.

This is the image that we were given to use, and these are the rules: #Flashfiction Prompt, Nanjo Castille

November 9, 2017 prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a fictional story about The Real Nanjo Castille. You can set any gender, era or genre to reveal the character behind the mystery. You can also imagine the daily life of The Real Nanjo Castille. Go where the prompt leads.

Respond by November 14, 2017 to be included in the compilation (published November 15). Rules are here. All writers are welcome!

I have gone with a reply to Nanjo’s e-mail. I hope that is not breaking the rules!

Dear Mr Castle, or can I call you Nando?

I heard you have some classy bags and perfumes for sale for a tenner. I am after a Christmas prezzie for my mum and she can’t stand that Coco Caramel, but is rather partial to Optimum.  I think John Paul Goatier’s perfume in that bottle-shaped like a girdle would suit her better. Oh, and I need a handbag for my sisters. Have you got any of them Blueberry or Herman’s ones in stock? I’m prepared to pay you twenty quid for the lot! Let me know, please.

  1. Judy you cranked out a good one! And, yes, the best flash is the one you follow without question (go where it leads). This is like the happy ending — Nando gets his sale.

Thank you for popping in, I'd love to hear your thoughts
