Chuck Wendig’s Flash Fiction Challenge this week was to choose 3 of the following 5 words, and use them in a 100 word story. I had a lot of fun writing this, and would love to hear what you think.
Words to choose from: Enzyme, Ivy, Bishop, Blister, Lollipop — I’m not going to tell you which I chose. You can read on and see for yourself.

“This is it, folks. No more poison ivy underwear or laxative-laced lollipops, just Bobby and Nikolai locked in good, clean combat.” A brief pause. “Are you ready for this?”
The crowd roared. The adversaries faced each other.
Bobby made the first move.
“Bishop to B2.”
