Damaged Goods is a ten minute Flash Fiction Exercise – 1000 words or less!  I was given 5 key phrases that had to be incorporated into this story.  The goal of this exercise is to write for 10 minutes, and get something down.  This is my ten minute flash, no editing allowed! I went over by 2 words, but that is ok.  I will put the key phrases I had been given at the end of this piece.  — Inara


Damaged Goods

My key phrases for this 10 minute flash were: “Before you get angry, let me explain the dent and the white feathers.”, The park was full of pigeons and panhandlers, A robust blond waitress, Character relives this until…, and a meteor shower.
