Liberty (Flash Fiction)

Found on Google Images.

FLASH FICTION PROMPT

(Today's prompt is what I'd call pure um, 'crack', meaning that it was written for nothing more than stress relief and a good laugh as it's been one of those days. I figured I'd share though, instead of just tossing it out. Cheers!)

“I’ve taken the liberty-” He began.

My heart leapt through my throat and splattered on the floor.

We stared at each other for longer than was strictly polite.

Then he reached down, picked up the squirming, sputtering organ and handed it back.

I blinked. “Er, that doesn’t really, um-”

“When he said android, I wasn’t really expecting something this fully…functional.” He hid a smile. “Fireproof, waterproof and idiotproof?”

“First two are standard, I guess time will tell with the other, yes?”

“Asking or telling?”

“I think I’m taking the uh, liberty of asking.”

The smile on his face made the sun rise with a halo and two free-range eggs, sunny-side up.

Oh honey - WAY too funny - love the imagery at the end. Giggled at least four times.
