#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.

Princess Rhea

Kevin looked up from his iPad. ‘Alice, have you finished your homework?’ 

‘Yes, dad.’

‘Did you write the story about what happened before the snow, darling?’ Asked her mother.

‘Yes, mum.’

‘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.’

  1. Dear Luccia,

    Alice doesn’t need a doctor, she needs an agent. 😉 Or, better yet, a teacher like the one Rod Serling had. Well done.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

  5. Oh dear, how has Dad got so fr in life being so literal and unimaginative. The interaction between these characters is great and definitively worth exploring further

    You made me wonder how many children have their dreams denied, very many I expect SADLY

  7. Alice sounds like the kind of child who will create worlds, even if people tell her that they are not real. She will make them so.

    P.S. I am new to FF, too, and echo your feelings about the welcome. These days, it’s hard to find a group of writers that not only share well and reciprocates.

  8. Welcome to the Fictioneers! I hope Alice perseveres, we’ll see in the following weeks.

  9. I am very irate with both those parents. She doesn’t need a doctor, she needs lots of paper and writing/ drawing tools. Let kids enjoy their imagination!

    • Oh dear, I think everyone hates the parents, I didn’t mean to create two monsters! I’m a teacher, I teach adults now, but I used to teach children, and when I spoke to some parents, they didn’t have a clue😂 They couldn’t understand them and thought their children had become aliens or insane😂 although they mean well. Teachers often have to ‘educate’ some parents too. Perhaps they’ve forgotten to dream or they’re too obsessed with paying bills…

  10. Oh I don’t hate the parents. Perhaps they’ve just forgotten the magical perspective of childhood. Reality ain’t all it’s cracked up to be. 😉 Nice story, Luccia.

  11. Alice seems to be the complete opposite of her dad. I wonder how her gran was… Great imagination, I love what she sees in the clouds.

  13. I don’t hate the parents (though I’m not sure I should admit that here…). I chuckled at the last line, actually. I have a dark sense of humor. But you know that.
    Let’s see where Alice goes because, as teachers and parents, we go along with children eventually, don’t we? ❤
