Winter Flash – Delusional

Jaffee reclined against the hard back of his throne, avoiding the spindles and rails depicting his heroic ascent to power. He surveyed the scene of last night’s debauchery. The sycophants belly crawled across the floor, their whines white noise rising to thunder.

Jaffee polished his sword surveying what he had won by the strength of his arm. Should he desire it, he could demand any of these fools lay down so he could walk across them.

“Jeff, young man turn off that damned video game and clean your room!”

“Aw, Mom not now.”

“My God, you’re a delusional child.”


It is a new season, time for a Winter of Disturbing Flashes. Flash in the Pan is brought to you by the remarkable Red of M3 fame, to join in the fun read the rules at the link provided and get to flashing!

The word this week is Delusional, with a word limit of 100. Delusional comes in at 99.

  1. Oh Mom, interrupting again! The end gave me a laugh – thanks

  2. I love Jeff’s alter ego. Probably every boy at one point or another wishes he were a Jaffee of sorts. Then, of course, reality hits. Gave me quite a chuckle.

    Have a really nice weekend Val 🙂 😉

    Andro xxxx

  4. Chuckle chuckle, I may have had one of those delusional children .. as my Son would have at one time spent hours in his room fighting demons! 🙂 I think he still uses his thumbs as his avenging sword! 🙂 Smiles..

    Gosh Val, nice to be here and feel the laughter 🙂

  5. Fab Flash!

  6. OMG, teenagers. Of course they’re delusional. Ha ha ha. Terrific choice, Valentine. Didn’t see that coming. 😀

  7. Dreams of grandeur – until Mom appeared 😦

  8. Good to return with a Flash in the Pan. The video game angle with mom surprised me … well done!

  9. Actually I feel most can share the charge of delusional when we sit in front of a TV screen. I wonder if most of us don’t pick out a character and identify with them, particularly if they are getting what they want?

    • I suppose that might be true Ian. I have myself now and then lost myself to a character, though usually it is in a book not a video game or television show. Just my personal choice I guess. 🙂

    Now that’s what I call an authentic Flash in the Pan,
    especially with that well chosen picture, one can almost
    see his sword in that one 🙂 Absolutely brilliant 🙂

    Or was it the Bobby’s Helmet? 😉 lmao

    Andro xxxx

    • Thought I would update the picture I use, that is one of the original flashers from Great Britian, can’t remember his name. That is the Bobby’s helmet, indeed. 😉


      • Gray Dawster says:

        Yes I think he lives up my street 🙂 Actually there used to be a neighbour that streaked on a weekend, thrilling some of the ladies and annoying others 😦 I guess he was just a big show off at heart, and a plonker for sure 🙂 lmao

        Have a wonderful rest of evening Val 🙂

        Andro xxxx

  12. Delusional, indeed. Maybe even delusional, at best. Hard to believe it’s now considered “winter.” Where I’m from in the US, they haven’t even had their first frost. However, makes the holidays seem closer, doesn’t it?

    Hugs from Ecuador,

    • That it does. I am down in Hoston today, I certainly miss home (Houston). A wonderful rain storm and in the 80’s. Love this weather. Dallas is in the 90’s. Winter indeed, only a name change in the seasons.

      Hope you are beginning to feel better.
