Five Sentence Fiction – Blush

From the first notes of ‘Scotland the Brave,’ she was smitten. Six hundred pounds he was, clad in only a park ranger’s hat and a kilt, her love stalked the last forest. His hands, long ago replaced with semi-automatic pistols, manipulated the bagpipes on his chest with the confidence that only decades of practice can bring. He fired once, and flames began peeking out from the debris on the forest floor. She blushed, a bit weak at the knees, as he turned to her and said in his gloriously deep and booming voice, “Only forest fires can prevent forest fires.”

For @jeffcouturier, @seandfrancis, and @afsaneh_dreams, in memory of a truly weird Twitter conversation.
