Lindsey; Three Blocks Down From West Avenue (Contains swearing)

“Did you hear about that Lindsey chick three blocks down from West Avenue?”

Jack snorted and threw his elbow into Edward’s ribs.

“Course I know about that Lindsey chick. Lindsey Legs Eleven.”

“Legs eleven?” Edward said. “You been going to bingo with your Gran again. Dude! What did I tell you about old people!”

“You ain’t said nothin’ about old people.” said Jack. “You were saying about Legs Eleven.”

“You know that sounds kinda weird.”

“How so?”

“Eleven, like eleven years old.”

“Ah gross man! What do you take me for?”

“A virgin mostly.” Edward grinned.

“Fuck you. Just tell me what happened with Lindsey.”

“Oh her? She died. Fell though the floorboards or something. Nasty. Scared the downstairs neighbour half to death according to Foz.”

“You know Foz is a liar right?”

“Course Foz is a liar. You think I don’t know that. But sometimes even Foz tells the truth.”

“So Lindsey’s dead.”

“Yer dead.”

“Fuck.”

“I know. Who you goin’ to bang now?”

Carol Forrester is a twenty-three year old writer trying to be a better one. Don’t ask her what her hobbies are because the list doesn’t get much beyond, reading, writing and talking about the same. She has a 2:1 BA degree in history from Bath Spa University and various poems and stories scattered across the net. Her flash fiction story ‘Glorious Silence’ was named as River Ram Press’ short story of the month for August 2014 and her short story ‘A Visit From The Fortune Teller’ has been showcased on the literary site Ink Pantry’s. Most recently, her poem ‘Sunsets’ was featured on Eyes Plus Words, and her personal blog Writing and Works hosts a mass of writing from across the last five years. She has been lucky enough to write guest posts for sites such as Inky Tavern and Song of The Forlorn and is always open to writing more and hosting guest bloggers here on Writing and Works. With hopes of publishing a novel in the next five years and perhaps a collection or two of smaller works, Carol Forrester is nothing if not ambitious. Her writing tries to cover every theme in human life and a lot of her work pulls inspiration from her own eccentric family in the rural wonders of Shropshire life.

    It can sometimes be hard to pull off dialogue-heavy stories, but I think this one works well. Just a friendly head’s up, the ‘n’ is missing from Lindsey’s name in the fourth-to-last sentence. Not a big deal, just thought I’d let you know. Anyway, keep up the great work. =)

Please take the time to tell me what you think, I love receiving feedback. :)
