Give the man a hand! (sorry, sorry, couldn't resist). An excellent flash, superb tease and reveal. I can't write these things to save my sorry life, but if I could, I wouldn't bother entering after reading this. Superb.

    Thanks so much, Emma. Give the man a severed hand! I started the story with a palmist, the severed hand was a gift from the heavens. Thanks for the stellar review. Peace, Lee

Woah! That was a bit of a surprise...I sure didn't expect it to be a disembodied hand. Nice touch having the palmist/psychic ask for her fee. Good luck in the contest.

    Thanks so much, StoryMan. The whole point of Flash is to surprise. Sometimes I get lucky. Glad you enjoyed. Peace, Lee

hi Lee,

you know with these short pieces, it's actually rare to find one that is actually flash fiction, but here it is! lol

very well written and the little crumbs are there throughout it so when the moment comes near the end, it all makes sense. The crumbs are the trickiest bits to place - too obvious, the end falters, to meagre and the leaps too far.

this one is perfect in that regard. very nice indeed. I hope it wins, but I'm not the best judge in these things, but it should.

    Thank you extra much, G. Not everyone understand the ins and outs of writing Flash. Many simply count words.
    I agree, the crumbs are always the key. If a second read makes the reader slap his/her forehead, that's Flash.

    Thanks for a real read. Peace, Lee

As a woman who's read a lot of palms and tarot cards, I appreciate the humor in your flash. The knowing and the not-knowing is what being a psychic is all about and you have captured it perfectly.
Have fun with the stars as I had fun with the read!

    Ah, so you've read some palms? Ever a severed one? I hope not, Beck. I really had fun with this.
    thanks so much, Beck. It's fun to write stories for people who get it. Peace, Lee

Yes, this works even better the second time. Good flash twist. Excellent dialog driven micro-fiction with strong POV, pacing and characterization. Bravo! A strong contender, I'm sure.

Warmly, rd

Well looks like the tables are turned on them thinking she could tell them where the rest of the body might be from just the cut off hand.

    Thanks so much, crw. You're right. Those detectives were barking up the wrong tree. Thanks again. Peace, Lee

Lee,

Yep. I agree. It reveals itself late, perhaps, but that second read is never necessary-- just soooo yummy when the work is this fab.

So sad for the rest of us. We, on the 'other hand', may as well cut off our own hands. The writing ones, that is, when it comes to these contests against you.

    Thanks so much, Robyn. I always tailor my Flash for the second read. Just me, I guess..
    I appreciate your kind words, but you know it's never over until the Committee sings. Thanks again. Peace, Lee

I say, gumshoe, give the lady a big hand. Excellent entry for the one hundred word writing contest prompt, Lee. Could Abigail Sciutto have done better, do you imagine?

    thank you, Red. Abby always finds something to point to the killer. She has super powers and killer thighs.
    Glad you enjoyed. Peace, Lee

OH MY!!! This contest entry had me believing he was really at a physic for himself, not to find the rest of the body. OH MY!! This is a very well written contest entry. I wish you the best of luck, but I doubt you will need it.

    thank you, Barbara. Flash is a necessarily sneaky genre. Sorry for sneaking up on you like that. Still, glad you enjoyed. Peace, Lee

Oh yuck! This reminds me of Queen Victoria who had casts made of her husbands hands after he died so she could continue to hold his hand. Just slightly creepy. She had the casts buried wih her when she died.

This is an excellent contest entry. I doubt anybody could match the shock value you have achieved here. It's a winner in my humble opinion.

    Thanks so much, Joy. Didn't mean to creep you out. I started with a psychic and a detective. Took me three drafts to realize I needed a severed hand. Writing is a process! Glad you enjoyed. Peace, Lee
