Summary: When I read Bandy's piece It flashed into my mind, what if..

“Hello Darling…yes.. tonight?” Emma cooed into her mobile.

“I’m sorry…I don’t understand. You want me to do WHO? But..no…can’t..” there was a long pause whilst she listened and gathered her ire.

“NOW JUST WAIT A MINUTE!” she shrieked to the airwaves when she could stand no more. “You promised I would never have to DO anyone again! It’s true, I can’t stand that ancient Sicilian pipsqueak - he reeks of garlic and oozes oil. But why would I want to..?” she paused and listened some more.

“What..make it worth my while, eh? How exactly? Well…that does seem very generous – pounds not euros I take it? Well….”

The offer was more than generous. She could always slip back into the old ways for just one more night? Maybe - just one more pop?

Vitto hasn't a chance! Good for Emma! Great "what if" to Bundy's piece. Gives Emma some oomph!

Thank you muchly JenDom!

No apologies needed Forbes,

You've put a different slant on my piece with this. Emma was an innocent (as in the woman from Indecent Proposal) but after reading your flash I can see how thoroughly bad they both are.

Emma and her man deserve each other with Vito in the middle.

Thanks Kev

In view of what's just happened with JenDom (!) I was worried that I might have stepped on toes and offended.

Actually Forbes - you've paid me a compliment. As Jen rightly pointed out to me this morning.

I mean Emma even had Forbes getting all creative and inspired - that's a great sign for any writer!!

Taken from the body of her WWM - Hope you don't mind Jen as this made me smile.

You BOTH have great enthusiasm for writing which is what this site is all about.

HMMM And I thought JenDom liked me!!!!!

I'm glad you perceive it was a compliment.


Don't worry I'm not offended!

Hey Forbes,

Don't you go gettin' all maligned as well. :)

We was just shootin' the breeze and it was Jens way of sending me a compliment after I said we'd all miss her fine writing if she left.

What I've read of yours has been just as good and enjoyable to read.

You wont believe this, I know, but a little over a year ago I hadn't written a stitch. Since joining WW I've finished the 1st draft of a 25,000 word children's book, have three others on the go and.......

...have learnt to limit my use of adverbs and adjectives by flashing, well I like to think so but it's not always the case. ;) In fact I'd never heard of Flash Fiction before joining WW.

That's why, and I truly mean this, I have the utmost respect for anybody who has a go in FF1 and FFToo. Your piece has given me an alternate window into mine which has changed (for the better) how I view other peoples writing.

So cheers and keep up the good work.
