Gotta Love Flash Fiction...

Here's the contest information...

I’m hosting a Super-short story contest. Here’s how to enter: In 100 words (give or take a few), write, then private message me a story using ALL of the following words: gator, captain, watermelon, gangbangers, Camaro, rescue, ice-pick, pivotal, and gushing. You have 48 hours to submit. The 1st place author wins a $25 Amazon gift card, plus I will post the winning story and a link to the author’s newest book or favorite book on my Facebook page for all to see!

Here's my entry...

Captain Camero looked over at his companion, Ariel Gator. He grimaced. “The gangbangers are at it again.”
“Yep. This watermelon is thrashed. They must’ve wasted a ton of ammo using it for target practice.”
“Look at this. They used an ice-pick on it.”
“Yep. They’re planning a hit. A big one.”
“Do we know who the target is?” Captain asked as he toed a watermelon with his boot. The shredded insides came gushing out as the rind split.
Ariel shrugged. “I’m guessing it will be a pivotal political candidate. We need to be ready to rescue whoever it is.”

I'll let you know how it goes! Should be a fun contest!
