Shot through the Heart - 55

In slow motion I watch the projectile pierce the air towards me.

Moments before the western whistle had silently blown as eyes met, prepared to draw.

Raising my weapon I begin to fall even before I'm inevitably hit

My trigger is pulled as I'm struck and hope for revenge.

Laughter erupts as Nerf darts collide.

This is a normal dual at my house lately with my 3 year old, usually standing on the arm of the couch with his weapon!  He always takes the first shot, but I get the last!

Tell a story in 55 words and post the link here with G-man for Flash Friday 55!  Come and play.

  3. Ah, good times! (Get him, Lincoln!)

    I remember doing the same with my little boy.
    He's 14 now and does all his shooting on X-Box.

    Nice 55!

    (And here I was going to razz you about the title being a Bon Jovi song! LOL!)

  4. I love those nerf products. I actually drive a nerf Hummer. Well, not really, but I it makes a fun image I think. :)
