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!

Once more Denise counted the lamp-posts to the bridge. She was sure she was waiting in the right place.
She called Alan again. No answer.
Something must be wrong! He wouldn’t stand her up. Not on New Year’s Eve. Would he?
The minutes were ticking away, and the crowd was growing steadily thicker, noisier and more exuberant.
Her phone pinged. A message. From Alan.
“Sorry. Dozed off. Enjoy the fireworks!”
Before she could answer, she felt a tap on her shoulder.
“Mark! How lovely to see you!”
“Here for the fireworks? Shall we watch them together?”
Why not? Bugger Alan!
