I hope you are well and ready for some more Flash Fiction.Today is my daughter, Hermione’s 12th birthday and so this story is for her. She really wanted to be able to fly, so I hope she likes it!
As always, we are given our photo prompt by our wonderful Friday Fictioneer leader, Rochelle . The rules are to write a story in 100 words, using the photo prompt as inspiration. I do apologise for my being behind with reading everyone’s work. I am busy learning lines for The Hollow and taking children to hospital appointments. It’s the first week of the holidays so wish me luck lol. I am hoping to catch up shortly.
So here is my attempt for this week. I hope you enjoy it.

Water levels rose.
Humans say it was God, some blame pollution.
Personally, I don’t see why it matters, the result is still the same.
Small camps now litter the mountains.
We protect them.
The human children gather, eyes wide, as we leap off the edge of the cliff.
Alana flies past me, “we’ll find her, Hermione.”
We soar over the new lakes.
“Over there!” Charlie points below.
My little sister’s trapped on a ledge, the beast’s claws swiping at her.
My heart stops.
Her wings broken!
I sweep down, catching her mid- air.
“You caught me.”
“I’ll always catch you when you fall.”
Thank you so much for taking the time to read my offering! If you fancy reading some more stories from the Friday Fictioneers please click on the little blue froggy, you won’t be disappointed!
