55 Flash Fiction Friday #56: Act I, Scene I (Exposition) PLUS a Birthday Extra for the G-Man

Stop the presses!

Okay, so would somebody explain to me why out of all the 55 fans out there, nobody told me that Our Host With the Most From Coast to Coast was turning 60 today? 'Cause ya'll gotta know by now we do birthdays big around here.

Happy Birthday G-Man! (in exactly 55 words)

We now resume your regularly scheduled 55 already in progress. I actually wrote this one over a year ago, but never got around to using it. Kept it in draft as a "backup". And since I was sort of in a time crunch this week it seemed like a good time to whip it out.

ex·po·si·tion: -noun dialogue, description, etc., that gives the audience or reader the background of the characters and the present situation.

The freshening onshore breeze brought a slight chill to the balcony where he stood. For the sixtieth time that hour he checked his watch, still only 5:15. He frowned as he heard the voice call out "Housekeeping". The frown vanished as the door swung open.

"You came a long way to bring clean towels."

M6Friday: 55FlashFiction Graciously hosted by G-Man.
