“A taste of the great life” 2023 Flashscapes! Competition Shortlist

‘I’m lookin’ for the Big Banana,’ he said to the petrol station cashier.
‘Why’s that, then?’
‘Thought’d be worth a look.’
‘On the other side of town.’ She jerked her chin. ‘That way. Can take you if you like. After my shift.’

‘Wow,’ he said. ‘Amazing.’
She knew it was underwhelming. But he seemed so excited.
‘Yeah,’ she said. ‘It’s bloody brilliant.’
