The Buried Volkswagen: FFftPP- 2016: WEEK #51


I would like to give a hearty welcome to all flash fiction aficionados. Welcome to the new Flash Fiction for the Purposeful Practitioner Home Site.

Flash Fiction for the Purposeful Practitioner is a weekly writing challenge designed for both the flash fiction newbie and the more experienced writer. It is the desire of this challenge to allow writers the opportunity to clear the cobwebs from a more tedious and involved project. Becoming a part of a new and growing writer’s community might be just what the doctor ordered to rejuvenate your writing juices.

All writers, from newbies to the seasoned, are invited to in the fun.

The Buried Volkswagen


“Honey… Honey…” I nudge him. “Wake up!”  I nudge him harder. “It’s time!!” I push him out of bed onto the floor.

“What is wrong with you?”

“The baby…”


“Of course not, Marcus. I just pushed you out of bed because I thought you might want to talk.”

Marcus was now standing somewhat upright adjusting his boxers and trying to get his t-shirt back down across his protruding belly.

“Hold on.” Marcus was now pants’ed  and was re-buttoning his shirt for the third time. “The suitcases are packed. All we have to do is call the doctor and get to Remington Memorial.”

“The doctor’s been called.” I replied. “But have you looked outside?”

Racing to the window, the street lights illuminated a winter wonderland. “It is beautiful.”

“Marcus, the car…”

Marcus looked out a saw the problem. The snowplows had wonderfully opened the street but they had covered our small yellow Volkswagen.

“Don’t worry, honey,” was the reply as he was grabbing his coat and gloves. “It’ll be free in a jiff.”

“I have already called the EMTs.” I tried to soften the blow. “Go down and flag them in, please.”

Relieved, Marcus nodded and dashed toward the elevators.
