flash fiction friday #26

happy flash fiction friday #26 (inclusion) trigger: rack, pack, track, crack, slack.

rules of engagement:

you will send in your suggestions for flash fiction friday triggers (starter sentences/phrases, closers, titles, inclusions, etc.) anytime during the week up to 11.55a.m. friday, trinbago timezone; i will post the new fff trigger by noon friday trinbago timezone.*

if your trigger is not chosen and you think it is too brilliant not to be chosen, you will send it in again the next week.

you will write an anecdote, short story, or novel length prose poem using the trigger provided.

you will add comments and appropriate linkage to my trigger-post indicating your desire to participate and the completion of your piece (don't need a blogger/gmail account to comment on my blog).

you may join in at any time prior to the deadline.*

you will display your piece as a post on your own blog (or as a comment on my trigger-post or fasbook note or whatever, once we can all read it- please make sure we can all access the link to read it, not just those who are your friends on fasbook; there's a way to create public links for that, right?).

you will be done by monday noon trinbago timezone.*[in light of collective busyness and my general mentality, i not pressed about these deadlines 'cause i'd rather have fun reading late than never, so if you want to fff past deadline, go through hard, just make sure you comment on the appropriate trigger-post so we know which it belongs to, and if is a real old trigger, comment on the most recent post as well so we know something new to back-back+read...if nobody fffs i'll leave the same trigger up until at least 1person other than myself writes a piece]*

write fresh!

walk good.

Two ideas came i been delinquent so i wrote them both :)

I could feel his eyes track my movements as i sat there waiting for someone to help me. Deep breaths i took, on purpose of course, to ensure my God-given DD rack slowly but obviously moved up and down, hopefully somewhat seductively. I mean really i wanted some service and it was a store filled with males, this should work...i hoped it would.

But only the manager in the back seemed to be aware of my efforts and that slack misbegotten sludge of a soul was not about to move from his comfy chair. Customer service be damned i suppose.

Then i noticed something. There was only one other customer in the store, a sexy 20-ish year old guy who was bent over trying to decide on a belt. He was however, not getting any help either. So where the hell was everyone?

Swiveling my head i finally found all of the clerks gathered in a pack, pushing against each other trying to reach the open doorway. It was at that point the smell hit me, and my head swiveled right back to the man who could not decide on a belt...that was the only place it could have come from, hard to imagine that something so deadly and wickedly pungent could ease its way out of that barely peeping crack.

Sweat beaded down the crack of my own personal front storage rack, as i peered carefully from my hopefully hidden spot behind the shed. I could only hope i left not a single track for the crazy man who decided we were in love now to follow. It started off so innocently, just a small flirtation, basic Trini slack talk, until of course he pulled out his special lil 'pack'. And when i say lil i mean minute, the kinda thing i wanna lend him my tweezers to put back...
