Billing Amount

Barbara Beacham is the host of Monday’s Finish the Story. Every week a photo and the first sentence of the story is shared and the challenge is to finish the story in 100 – 150 words.

Finish the story begins with: “On March 9th, 2015, three objects were reportedly seen in the skies over the Borracho Todos los Tiempos Vineyards.”

“Did you read this nonsense?” said Tom.

“What?” asked the waitress.

“They have seen some kind of flying objects at some place.”

“Don’t you believe it then,” said the waitress.

“No! Hell no. Can you get the bill for my coffee?”


“There seems to be some kind of mistake in the bill.”

“No,” said the waitress.

“Well you are mistaken. I’m not going to pay for something I’ve not ordered,” shouted Tom.

“Don’t shout. It will drain your energy. We are going to Tiempos Vineyards. We have company waiting….”

“What non…nnn…sen?” said Tom, as he crashed to the floor.

“…waiting to feast on you,” said the waitress with a pleased smile as she dragged him to the kitchen.

    • Thanks for reading and commenting. I’m glad that you enjoyed the story. I really got tired and hungry while writing the story. The beginning seemed okay but the end was missing. I could hear my stomach grumbling and wanted…a chicken and then… the story, took a twist. 🙂
