Flash Fiction: The Repo Property Had Potential and Good Vibrations

The Ford Ranger bounced down the road

“Ouch!” Elane rubbed her head.

Aging middle-class homes on small acreages  turned their backsides to the street to capture the spectacular view of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Towards the middle of the road, the county placed a sign, “End of County Maintained Road.” 

Elane laughed, “Maintained?”

Todd steered the Ranger in the driveway. They got out and let down the tailgate. Dangling their legs they stared at the dilapidated bungalow with the bank repossession sign. 

“New three-car garage,” Todd said.

“Three-foot high weeds!” Elane said.

“It’s got good vibes,” they said together.

June 18, 2020, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story that includes good vibrations. What is unfolding? Is someone giving off or receiving the feeling? Where is the story situated? Gather some good vibes and go where the prompt leads!

    • Exactly. Since this is what happened when my husband and I found our house, it’s borderline for fiction. The conversations are fiction but the descriptions are not. I don’t have a sharp enough imagination to visualize without reality. 🙂 Is that something you can learn?

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
