Succintly Yours- Flash Fiction

Grandma's Goulash regularly runs a Flash Fiction challenge. Quite a few people enter. Here's my next installment of fewer than 140 characters (you can choose 140 characters or 140 words). The extra credit word is "fabricate." Here's the picture that is to be the inspiration:




Here's my story:

"Fabricate clews? Never! I am the sleuth extraordinaire, not the butler who did it. Excuse me, I spy a mote of sinister dust."

Ooh, I really like the veddy British spelling and attitude. Those old-time butlers, I mean sleuths were no slouches!

Oh-my! He'd best stay away from my house! He wouldn't need a spy glass to spot dust here!
Cute!

A sleuth extraordinaire would never fabricate clues! Would they?? ;)

Wonderful, another sleuth extraordinaire with all the humility of Hercule Poirot. Gotta love it.

A wonderful use for the glass, Sharkie. I must get one to check up on Mrs. Jim's cleaning. She misses some dust, I know.

Ah yes, all dust is sinister... LOL! Good one this week.

Lovely dialogue. It told the story and I felt as if I were listening rather than reading.

An engaging story with a fun twist. I wonder if I could get him to come and take care of my dust?
