In recent weeks there’s been a _classics_ meme happening within the Drabble/Flash Fiction community, with re-tellings of old classic stories with a modern twist and told in the Flash Fiction format.

Drablr has seen a number of great re-tellings but Bryan’s Wuthering Heights is the first to gain the Drabble of the Week award.

“I dunno, it gets a bit parky up there at this time of year and I haven’t got me thermals on,” said Heathcliff.

“So, what are we gonna do then, any bright ideas?”
