In 55 Words FD MC Challenge 2017 – Day 270
So… I was playing Rocket League last night.
I’m not particularly good at it but I like having fun every now and then and it had been a while since the last time I had done so. One of the things I always find entertaining, besides the game itself, is reading the aliases of the other players because there are some combinations that are simply to die for.
It was precisely one of those that, inadvertently, provided the genesis of the inspiration for this piece. I’m not going to tell you what it was because I think it will be quite evident once you read the tale. The story itself has got nothing to do with video games and it’s as silly as it gets but I keep saying I like silly because I really do. I hope you can say the same. Enjoy.

“Surely you mean ‘ashtray’?
“No. Allow me to demonstrate…”
She lit a cigarette.
The slave bent.
The journalist quit smoking that day.
