Thanks for stopping in this Friday for another dose of Flash Fiction.

Just the Two of Us

"Donovan, we need to talk." Sage leaned against Mickey.
"I'm listening." Cool air brushed his cheek, ruffled his hair.
"I'm ready." He grinned broadly.
"I knew you'd get here. He'll be good for you." The wind picked up, whipped his hair about. "I love you."
"So, this is good–bye?"  
"One last thing. Tell him if he's not prince fucking charming the rest of your life, I'll come back and haunt him."
"I'm sitting right here. I can hear you two." Mickey completed the heart Sage drew with a sweep.
"I want you to." The wind faded leaving them alone.

BLURB
Mischa knew his brothers were up to something. He didn't know it would lead him to Donovan Holloway and change his carefree lifestyle forever.

Donovan Holloway, advertising executive, newly made vice president of the company where he's worked for twenty years, grew up in a free love hippie commune, taking care of the parents who should have been taking care of him. He's worked hard to put himself through school and achieve the American dream. All he's ever wanted was a normal family life—house in the suburbs, two cars, two kids, a shaggy dog. A family to come home to—to care for, and to care for him.

Mischa Blake is the green eyed, liberally-pierced, black-haired, Mohawk-wearing spoiled youngest son of a Hollywood producer and his actress wife. Mischa has made a terrible mistake. In a fit of childish pique, he's accepted a dare from his older brothers. The dare? Live on his own, supporting himself completely for a year without accessing his trust fund. No problem. Except Mischa has never worked a day in his life, hasn't finished college, and has absolutely no skills that he can bring to the table.

So when he sees Donovan's ad for a housekeeper/gardener, he has nothing to lose by applying, because really...how hard can it be?

  2. So sad and so sweet at the same time. I absolutely love this one. I wanted to know why it's goodbye and why he said "I'll come back and haunt him". This could very easily be a good story.

Be Yourself

To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting. ~e.e. cummings, 1955
