Flash Fiction for the Aspiring Writer:  A Nice Young Guy

Janine was willed a vintage car by her Grandpa. She opened the door on the right side of the car and sat inside. The glove compartment was open and Janine saw a letter with her name on it:

My Dearest Janine,

Nothing a man loves can compare with the love of a good woman. When I meant Jessica, I was stupified when I saw her and I hit her with this car.

I rushed out of the car scared I had hurt her, but Jessica looked at me with a smile in her chocolate brown eyes and she fluffed her mahogany hair. She was fine.

We dated briefly and she became your Grandma. That’s why I kept this car so long. It reminds me of how I met her.

I’m sending you on a singles trip around Europe. Prepare to learn and share experiences with men who will appreciate the real you as you travel. I’m sure you’ll meet a nice young guy.

  1. What a parting gift from Grandpa! If nothing else, she’ll have the trip of a life time. Lovely story 🙂

    Hope you don’t mind me pointing out a typo in the first line of the letter: It says “meant Jessica” instead of met Jessica.

  2. Lovely story! For a minute there, I thought Grandpa was leaving her the car so she could find a nice young man to run over! Haha! I’m glad he went with the option that wouldn’t get her sent to jail. 😀

  3. Lovely story! It is similar to mine, in that grandpa and grandma owned the car. LOL! I thought your story was very cute and it’s a good thing he didn’t kill “grandma” when he hit her otherwise, Janine wouldn’t be around. 😀 Wonderful story.
