Day Five: ‘I often indulge in one hundred word pieces of Flash Fiction. I thought I’d share a topical one with you’

Contributor: Tony:

“For a contribution today, I thought I’d provide what I hope is a bit of entertainment. These days, I am a self-employed creative writer and to keep my brain alive I often indulge in one hundred word pieces of Flash Fiction.
I thought I’d share a topical one with you.”

Correct Distance by Anthony L Church

“Granddad, what did you do in the great Corona outbreak?”
I smiled proudly.
“I got on with it my dear.”
The little face thought for a second.
“Did life really change forever?”
“Of course not, my darling.”
It was time for them to go, so I bumped my elbow with my son-in-law and virtually kissed my granddaughter through my new-age smarterphone.
The other half was already in bed when I went up.
“Did they get off ok?”
I nodded and then got into bed ensuring that our trusty bolster would keep us at the correct distance apart throughout the night.
