Top Down – Friday Fictioneers

This is an edition of Friday night Fictioneers. Thanks to our lovely hostess, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields and to Ted Strutz for the magical photo.

I’m a diet, and as I said it’s Friday night, so I have to have my fun somehow. I suppose this is an adult version of an amusement park ride. Have fun. Be safe.

Here’s some other exciting news. This is my 400th post! I’ll celebrate with some green tea. 🙂 Have a great weekend.

If you like to write your own 100-word story, join in. All are welcome.


Top Down 

Genre: Humor (103 words)

Top Down. It’s the little red sports car. In the hands of Raina, Jill is along for the ride.

Sunshine beams rest on their shoulders, their skin basking in the sea-salt spray. Raina weaves in and out, and hugs the corners. Jill flirts to passer-byes, her eyes moist, singing and eating her flyaway hair.

Raina throws her head back. Faster and faster she goes. The siren glows and squeals.

Tops off. Raina tosses her bikini over her seat. The wind takes Jill’s top.

“Is there a problem, officer? Am I going too fast?”

Hanging in the balance. “Um. No.”

It works every time.

  1. Ha! The cheeky women 🙂 Reminds me of a film I saw where a woman tries the same stunt (not to the same extreme!) but the cop is a woman (might have been Cannonball Run). Fun story!


    1. Ha! I used those tears once, but I was really crying, of course! I don’t know of anyone who’s done this, but I bet it’s been done somewhere by someone. I have taken a nice coastal ride in a convertible where the driver, not me, got a ticket. That’s kind of my inspiration.

      1. Oh, no! Four tickets in a row. I would be balling, too. Please no. I’m glad you got a break. I was 16 I think, and I had my hair in a bun and had glasses on and I was late for a dance rehearsal. I sobbed about that and everything else. I must have looked pathetic. LOL

      2. LOL! I had just gotten married and he had a brand new Chevrolet Super Sport. So, the cops seemed to get a kick from pulling me over. Finally, I started crying and after that, they left me alone. Of course, I didn’t speed anymore. LOL!


  2. The officer had to admire the way the girls handled those curves, using them to full advantage, I’d say. As they grow older they’ll learn to use them at a slower speed and maximize the enjoyment. Great story, Amy.

  3. Dear Amy,

    Great title. Top down, top off…Love it. I can’t do better on commenting than Russell and Randy so I’ll leave it at great take on the prompt and congrats on 400 posts. Good job!




  4. Congratulations on your 400 posts! That’s quite an accomplishment. When I was 17 and made a wrong turn, I smiled at a young traffic cop and got off with a warning–and I was fully dressed. Those were the days. Well done, Amy. 😀 — Suzanne


    1. Thanks, Suzanne. I did it. My 400th post! Yes, those were the days. When things were much more innocent and discreet. Not like my story! I’m glad you liked it. 🙂


  5. This brought a smile. It reminds me of my beautifully endowed friend who did this very thing in Mexico. My thoughts were, “She could have been let go (which she was) or arrested.” Still grinning, Alicia


    1. Glad it made it you smile! I couldn’t ask for more. That’s hilarious about your friend in Mexico. Yes, these ladies are living life on the edge. They’ve been lucky so far, but that luck could always run out.


Take it away.
