FF – Destroying the Lobster

Here is my story for Friday Fictioneers, hosted by Rochelle. This week’s photo was contributed by Rochelle herself.

Patrons screamed as a black-clad figure smashed through the ceiling window, dropping to the floor.

“Come out, Lobster!” he snarled. “Your evil-doing days are done!”

“Good evening, Sir,” said a waiter, quite unphased. “Table for one?”

“What? Where is the Lobster?”

“I’m sure I don’t know, Sir. Maybe a cocktail while you wait?”

“I’m a top agent, dammit!”

“That’s nice, Sir.”

“I’ve got the wrong address again, haven’t I?”

“Indeed. We do have lobster, if Sir would care to choose one?”

“Fine. I’ll destroy the lobster one way or another.”

“Certainly, Sir. I’ll have the ceiling repairs added to your bill, Sir.”

    Perhaps he will ask for the lobster to be shaken, not stirred

      Haha, I hope he does. Surely that’s part of the secret agent training.

    It’s always nice to have a superhero drop in!

      Almost worth picking the glass shards out of your soup for…

    An unfortunate mix up, although he may still get a nice meal out of it!

    It’ll be the most expensive Lobster Thermidor he’s ever eaten!

    Echos of Johnny English our crack special agent.

    That’s the spririt, destroy the lobster one way or the other. I just hope that bill won’t destroy him. 🙂

    while the big one still on the loose, he might as well enjoy the little one. 🙂

    Waiter! There’s a shard of glass in my soup…


    • January 29, 2022 at 6:48 am

      Aren’t you the lucky one, Sir, that’s prime stained glass…


  11. January 28, 2022 at 10:08 pm

    Hilarious! Love the waiter’s calm demeanor.


  12. January 28, 2022 at 10:26 pm

    I love the perfect courtesy and sang-froid of the waiter when confronted by the agent. Just what you get in the best restaurants…


    • January 29, 2022 at 6:51 am

      This was indeed one of the best restaurants until the ceiling disintegrated. The waiter’s a professional until the end, though!


  13. January 28, 2022 at 10:32 pm

    No problem, Sir. It happens every day. We have a wonky worm hole, ya know. 🙂

    Fun well done.

    Your title had me smiling, and I didn’t stop till the end. Very good. I just love the banter here and ‘the lobster’ is such a funny name for whatever villain the agent is seeking.


    • January 29, 2022 at 6:52 am

      Thanks, I’m glad you enjoyed it! Imagine being a criminal called the Lobster 🙂

    There’s more than one way to destroy a lobster. I think he got the best way.

    Hee hee that was good Ali 🤭 LOL I can just hear the waiter’s voice.

    Dear Ali,

    Already the lobster has won. That sky light is going to be expensive to replace.

      Dear Rochelle,
      The Lobster always wins. Given his screwup, I doubt he’ll be able to claim any of it on “spy expenses”.


  18. January 30, 2022 at 4:36 pm

    I hope that Lobster had a hard skin, he reminded me of a 00Lobster, don’t ask me why😸Extra Pawkiss🐾😽💞


    • January 31, 2022 at 7:22 am

      That would be a good spy designation – double-o Lobster 🙂

    I heard that The Lobster always wins – that’s why they say he so very shellfish.

    What an entrance, too bad it was at the wrong place.


    • January 31, 2022 at 7:23 am

      Yes, it would have been so cool if he could read a map:-)


  21. February 1, 2022 at 2:20 am

    Now that is one calm, cool, and collected waiter. He should be paid a fortune instead of scrambling for tips.


  22. February 4, 2022 at 5:34 pm

    Hope he can afford it!


    • February 5, 2022 at 6:07 am

      He’s a “top agent”, I’m sure he’ll find a way 😉
