30 day Writing Challenge Flash Fiction Days 6, 7 and 8

Some more flash fiction for your enjoyment.
Remember flash fiction are short pieces of 100 words or less.

I don't just make these up at random. I am given a prompt and have to use certain elements in each piece. Which makes it harder. It's easy to create your own story, much more difficult when someone says:
"Give me 100 words and use a ball point pen, a monkey and a jar of lard!"

Cheer Up Oops

Seniors are taught magic right off. Starting the first day of school.
The easiest spell to master is Cheerup.
It’s a dribble of this and a bit of that with a pinch of wish.
He did a dribble of that, a bit of wish and a pinch of that.
When his lab partner handed him a love note he was in shock.
When she followed him around and begged to do his homework he was appalled.
It took all day for him to realize what had happened.
He was in for a rude awakening when the spell wore off.

Untimely Death

I admit, I was an annoyingly bad boss.
I accused employees of faking their sicknesses.
I took credit for their ideas.
I don’t think I deserved to die.
I didn’t warrant being strangled.
I really didn’t earn being killed on vacation.
I bet it was Susan, my young and hot secretary.
Maybe I shouldn’t have made her pack my luggage.
It was a shock, to be certain.
When that pink bikini shot out of my suitcase, wrapped itself around me and choked me.
A magical killing bathing suit? Who knew!?
I still don’t think I deserved it.

Cheater Cheater Pumpkin Eater

The leprechaun gave me the good luck charm, told me to attach it to anything.
I don’t think he meant for me to use it the way I did.
I knew my girlfriend was cheating, but I had no proof.
I put the charm on a pair of binoculars.
I went to her house.
The curtains were closed.
I peered through the binoculars.
I saw everything.
They were making out.
I couldn’t see him.
Stomping up the stairs to her door, angry knocking.
She answered, flushed, embarrassed.
I peered around her to confront him too.
It was that damn leprechaun.
