With Spring in full bloom it seemed a perfect time to share this mystery flash fiction story by Barry Ergang! This story originally appeared in the print anthology Short Attention Span Mysteries, which was published by Kerlak Publications in 2005.
“Myron, take me shopping.”
‘Nag!’ he thought, leaning on the shovel and beaming at newly planted impatiens.
“C’mon! You spend more time in this garden than you do with me.”
“You’ll have to help with the gardening,” Myron said, smiling.
He swung the shovel with a gratifying whomp. “You can push up the daisies.”
