I came across this photo by © Sarah Potter and couldn’t resist the temptation to write a Flash!
It’s my first time on Friday Fictioneers, which is a weekly challenge hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. The task is to write a story in 100 words based on a photo prompt. Read the rules, and follow the Froggy on Rochelle’s post to read the other posts and link your own here.
Here’s my take.
Before The Snow
“Mummy, what if it never stops snowing?”
“It’ll stop, Alice.”
“But if the snow covers all the houses and we can’t go out ever again, so we have to dig a tunnel down to the centre of the earth and build a new world called Deepland?”
My father shook his head. “Where did that idea come from?”
“Nowhere. I made it all up.”
He sighed. “She needs to go back to the psychologist.”
“She’s just creative. Maybe one day she’ll be a fantasy author,” said my mother.
“Yes, I will. I’ll write about what it was like before the snow.”
