#FridayFictioneers ‘Princess Rhea’ #FlashFiction
I received such a warm welcome, met such creative and supportive bloggers, and had such fun last week, that I’m back again with my second contribution to Friday Fictioneers 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.
My first post introduced Alice, a creative child who has an encouraging mother, and a father who is confused by his daughter’s vivid imagination. I’ve decided to continue exploring Alice’s creativity as long as I she’s willing to tell me her stories.
Kevin looked up from his iPad. ‘Alice, have you finished your homework?’
‘Did you write the story about what happened before the snow, darling?’ Asked her mother.
‘So what are you writing now?’
Alice rushed to the window. ‘Look, there’s a battle in the sky!’
Her father shook his head. ‘You mean there’s a storm coming, don’t you?’
‘I mean Princess Rhea is being kept prisoner inside the black cloud and the butterflies have to help her before the sun melts them into a rainbow.’
‘Did you phone Doctor Wilson, Martha?’
She sighed. ‘Not yet, dear.’
