This is an oldie but a goodie...from my days of writing Flash Fiction (telling a story in 55 words).
"WHO'S OUT THERE?"
I was asleep when it happened.....
I awoke suddenly...sitting straight up in my bed!
The noise came from the living room.
My heart pounding,
grabbed the baseball bat kept by the bed.
Looked down the hall.
The noise getting louder!
Lifting the bat, getting ready........
Slowly peaking around the doorway..
Santa was eating cookies!!!!
