Friday Fictioneers – Clean shot

Every week, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields (thank you, Rochelle!) hosts a flash fiction challenge, to write a complete story, based on a photoprompt, with a beginning, middle and end, in 100 words or less. Post it on your blog, and include the Photoprompt and Inlinkz (the blue frog) on your page. Link your story URL. Then the fun starts as you read other peoples’ stories and comment on them!

There she is! I ready myself.

Damn! Someone’s blocking my line. Move, you idiot!

He moves.

I squeeze the shutter release.
