July 2018 Flash Challenge - The Premise

"You are Such a Disappointment to Me!"

OK, so Dad saved the universe - twice - while wearing spandex. Mum comes from a hidden tribe of warriors who excel at EVERYTHING. Uncle Ralph commanded legions of the undead, and would have conquered the world if it hadn't been for those meddlesome kids...

And now there's you. No pressure, kid. We understand. It's OK. Really. Whenever you're ready...

So tell us a tale, in a thousand words or less. Let there be dialogue, and drama (I have a feeling there's going to be a LOT of drama!)

Send entries to me by pm before Midnight on 21st July 2018 (Midnight being a relative term...)

My usual "get it out of my head giggling session" before I begin to write, perchance to dream...

"So, your uncle is Andrew Lord Webber. Your Aunt knows Idina Menzel. So, we expect Much Drama. But no Pressure! However, your cover band covers "Under Pressure" by Queen. "

Mine is first-drafted. Just need to let it sit for a day to mature, and then last edits.

Though, I must have been a sight as the only guy at the gym with a notebook, scribbling away as I rode the bike...
