Spy Flash – Week 27

In truth, week twenty-seven for the Rory’s Story Cubes Challenge was almost two weeks ago, but I’m not going to skip any. You may just see several Spy Flash 2 stories show up in a short amount of time.

The original twenty-six weeks of Spy Flash stories I’ve taken down from this site because the manuscript for the book Spy Flash is currently in the proofing stage and on track for December publication. Here’s a glimpse of the cover:

You’ll be able to purchase it from Amazon.com as a paperback and an e-book, and don’t worry. You’ll know when it’s available because I’ll be self-serving about it.

The next twenty-six-week servings of the Rory’s Story Cubes Challenge will be called Spy Flash 2, and I’ll likely compile those stories into a collection as well.

In the meantime, here is the story for week twenty-seven, “Hero Worship,” and it takes place in the mid- to late-1980’s. As usual, comments are welcome.



This was the roll of the cubes for week twenty-seven:

l. to r. – dropping a ball/missing a ball/error; escaping thief; playing baseball; a flower; bratty child; kicking a ball; checking a present/ticking time bomb; carrying a burden; lightning.

If you don’t see the link on the story title above, then click on the Spy Flash 2 tab at the top of this post and select it from the drop-down menu. If you’d like to give the Rory’s Story Cubes Challenge a try, write a story of any length based on the cubes above and post a link to it here or on Jennie Coughlin’s blog.

I live for your constructive comments.
