"Inspection," flash fiction by Alain Gomez

"It could use some fixing up, of course."

"They usually do," she observed cynically.

"It's a great location, though.  The water and power is all intact."

"The power lines are ancient.  I could never run my equipment from them!"

"But that's nothing if you consider all the potential.  Such a low price too!"

"I'll pass.  Where's the next place on your list?"

"It's right next door.  Cute little place called Mars.  You'll love this one, I'm sure."

  2. Thanks, guys. Your comments are very encouraging. I find that I'm enjoying my flash fiction experimentation. It's like writing poetry. Only not. Lol.
