Maydays:  Flash Fiction – The Green Lady #Maydays #amwriting


Thanks to K.L. Caley from new2writing for hosting #Maydays prompts. Today’s prompt is doing or having done something stupid or awkward.



Jeff had drank too much that night. It started with the tequila shots, followed by rye and gingers, and ended with shots of jäger. He walked through the bar, connected to his condo building, and he stopped in the lobby. He noticed a pretty woman, wearing green and standing by herself. She must be waiting for a cab, Jeff thought.

Jeff started talking to the woman, leaning up against her, laying it on thick as he could.

 “Hey baby. You’re gorgeous. You’ve such beautiful green eyes. Would you like to come upstairs to my condo and have a drink with me? You don’t have to stay there unless you want to. I can’t believe you’re here alone and you haven’t a wedding ring. Women as beautiful as you don’t come to this bar often.” 

The woman didn’t say a word and Jeff tried to get a kiss from her but she was rigid, ignoring Jeff’s lips.

 “Please, one kiss. You’ve such plush lips. I want one kiss, only to remember such a lovely woman by.You’ll like it. I’m a fantastic kisser.” 

The woman didn’t move. She never even turned her beautiful smooth greenish-skinned face towards him. Jeff became angry at her and Jeff tried to turn the woman towards him, she ended up falling on the floor. Then he was in tears, hoping she was alright. 

“I’m so sorry. I didn’t mean to knock you over. I’ve had too much to drink. It’s only you’re gorgeous and I’ll probably never see you again. It’s okay. I know you’re not interested. Sorry to have disturbed you.” Jeff said helping the woman stand up, before heading up to his condo. He collapsed on his bed and slept.

The security guard watching the camera footage of a drunk man hitting on a plant he thought was a young woman, had tears running down his face. He couldn’t stop laughing as the histarical scene played out.

  1. Loved it Mandi, very well done…..a mate of mine came out one morning and discovered his stereo was covered in urine. After a while they realised that in the middle of the night on his way to where he thought the toilet was he stopped at the stereo, lifted the lid and did the deed….yes he had had a few the night before…..

    1. Haha. That’s really funny. I don’t know if the stereo was working after that lol. I’ve had a few friends wake up on the lawns of strangers, thinking it was their lawn/home in the early morning.

      1. I was looking for your comment at Jackie’s party about your post that is also a start to your book…I thought it would be faster to ask you than find the comment, which post is it that you were speaking of?

      2. Here is chapter 1 and 2 of my book. I’ve started editing now so things are changing but this is how it will stay on the blog. I have to go through each chapter and link to the one ahead, right now, it only links to the chapter before 🙂 if you go into categories on my blog and keep going back under ‘Novel’ All the chapters are there. Just noting they are all in first draft, if something doesn’t quite follow or make sense 🙂




      3. Thanks Mandi, my internet is going down again so I will have to wait until tomorrow to read them….thank you so much, it gives me something to look forward to! 😊

      4. No problem Deb. I did go through each chapter tonight and put a link to the following chapter so it’s easier to read. It was on my to do list, so you were a good reason to link the chapters. Thanks and hope you enjoy.

  2. This is a good written article! I enjoy it very much. Could you distribute
    a bit of you writing skills with me? It would help a lot in that unlimited paper penning for university.
    It is good that there are can be found web sites exactly like this Demi which makes
    evaluations on many paper authoring organizations.
