Flash 25: Criminal Clown

Criminal Clown
Stuart R. West

Thumping woke me in the night. I slipped out of bed and tip-toed downstairs. A clown stood frozen at the back door, cradling my television.

Caught somewhere between fear and a dream-like state, I blinked, rubbed my eyes. Not the best response, I laughed.

He asked, "What's so funny? Do I look like a clown to you?"


His red, plastic nose squeaked when I planted a meat-cleaver into his face.

I pumped my fist like a rock-star to the resounding applause in my head. Always wanted to kill a clown.

Mimes are next. Then politicians and Kardashians.

 If you like this flash fiction don't forget to vote for it in our voting poll on the left side.

Just read the flash fiction entries and enjoyed most of them. I never thought one could write a complete story with so few words. Well done, everyone!

You've got a creepy mind. Let me know when you get to the Kardashians. I'll help.
