Hello all !
We are in the midst of a wonderful heat wave here. But I must confess that I’m stuck inside and feel like I’m melting, slowly becoming one with my office chair. If only I had a swimming pool and young scantily clad men serving me cocktails, just think how productive I could be! I can but dream. 🙂
It’s that time of week again where we are given a photo prompt and have to come up with a piece of flash fiction, no more than 100 words. Thank you to our fantastic host Rochelle Wisoff-Fields who runs the Friday Fictioneers and has given us another fab photo to work with.
Hide and Seek
By Heidi Busby Brown
‘Count to one hundred this time Harry!’ I squeal.
He turns around, ‘one, two…’
I run with my dolly tucked under my arm.
I climb up into the open boot of one of the old graffiti covered cars and giggle.
The floor is scratchy and I wriggle around trying to get comfortable.
The boot crashes down.
It won’t open.
Tears spill down my cheeks and drip onto the plastic head of my dolly.
‘Row, row, row your boat…’ I sing it over and over again.
‘Phoebe!’ Harry scoops me up in his arms, ‘I’ve found her!’ People in uniforms surround us and I see my Mum pushing through the crowd.
‘You always find me Harry.’ I whisper before I fall asleep.
Thank you ever so much for taking the time to read my offering! As always I love to hear from you, so feel free to leave a comment 🙂
