It is Monday and once again I am participating in the Mondays Finish the Story flash fiction challenge.
The rules for this challenge are to write a story that goes with the photo and uses the opening line provided. The word limit is between 100-150 not including the opening line. Today I took the liberty of going a bit over, as this story just had to be told the right way….Here is the photo and my story!
“Pizza anyone?” asked John. Those were his last words. Let me go back to the beginning of the day…
John, an avid pizza maker, returned home with a new wood-burning pizza oven for use outdoors. After reading the instructions on how to use it, he got it set up out back.
Then he went to work in the kitchen. He made his own pizza dough. While the dough was resting, he put together his own special sauce. Next, he got all the toppings ready. Once the dough was ready, he dotted the top with his chosen items. He slid the pizza into the oven.
We all sat around, drinking glasses of red wine, as the pizza cooked. When it was ready, he pulled the pizza out of the oven, and turned to us uttering those last words. You see, in a flash he, the pizza and the oven disappeared.

John looked around and found himself in a dark wine bar surrounded by grey beings, each holding wine glasses in their three-fingered hands. He saw people behind a bar, and a senior citizen band was playing music. Looking back to the smiling greys, he heard in his mind, “Pizza!”
