I confess I was caught out with the flash fiction this week. I’d wrongly guessed we’d have a David Bowie song as the prompt to create a one hundred word piece. Instead, Matt The Book Blogger chose a song originally recorded by another legend, Elvis Presley. Here’s my autobiographical tale:
I can’t help falling in love
‘Right’, said Alan. ‘We both know only fools rush in, so I’ve a plan for our fact finding trip to Crete. If you get too excited about a property I’ll pour cold water on the idea.’
Yvonne bristled, ‘Well, it might be you that gets carried away. Then I’ll have to say no.’
The first was grim.
The second a money pit.
The third, ‘Wow, look at the view.’
Back in the UK mum asked if we’d had a good holiday. We looked at each other and grinned, ‘Yes, we bought a village house. Some things are meant to be!’
If anyone considers buying a property in Crete I can personally recommend this professional company that delivers excellent service. http://www.crete-homes.com
