#7sins microfic challenge

The seven sins challenge

I thought I'd finish up with something a little more light-hearted after six days of darkness. Thanks to Lady Antimony for coming up with the challenge. It's been a lot of fun. My poor, oft-neglected blog must be wondering what has hit it for the last seven days.


The sports car engine croons its song of supressed power and easy money as Gary cruises down the road with the top down. As people turn to look he takes a moment to nod and accept the accolades that come with the car, the assumption that he must be Somebody. 

A blonde girl in a short skirt waves as he passes and he stops, preening, to see if she would like a ride in the car. He is about to ask her name when her accomplice hits him from behind.

The girl blows him a kiss as they drive away in his car.


  1. He's Somebody all right. Somebody without a car!

    Too bad. So sad.

    Well done on the list!

  2. Oops! Still chuckling over Heather's comment.

    "The assumption that he must be Somebody." Great line.
    Rosie, it's been a treat following your work for the past week, and meeting you through this challenge.


  3. Great twist! Very entertaining! Thanks very much. I've enjoyed reading your work this week and will be following to read more.

  4. At least she blew him a kiss as they drove away. It is a bit lighter than your others, but still not very nice to the sinner. Which is probably just as well, we don't want to encourage sin.

  5. Excellent! I particularly like "croons its song of suppressed power" - a WONDERFUL image. I enjoyed him getting his comeuppance - does that make me a bad person? LOL.

  6. Brilliant end to the challenge! I was looking forward to some darkness though!
