#FridayFictioneers The Flying Ferris Wheel #FlashFiction

I’m having such fun looking forward to Fridays and responding to Friday Fictioneers with stories of adorable and creative Alice, and her incredulous and conventional parents, Marsha and Kevin. Today, you’ll be meeting a friend of hers, Billy (in the photo). I hope you like him!

Thanks to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for hosting the challenge and Jennifer Pendergast for today’s photo prompt, which led me directly to this weeks’ 100-word story.

The Flying Ferris Wheel

Alice sat cross-legged on the grass, her head buried in her knees, sulking.

She’d been told off yet again for telling stories. Would she ever find someone who understood her?

‘Alice, Come here!’ shouted Billy.

‘Where are you?’

‘Behind the big wheel.’

‘No!’ She had to save him.

‘Be careful, Billy! It’s not a wheel. It’s a time portal. They’ll take you away!’

‘Are you crazy? Come here! It’s a flying  Ferris wheel. If we jump on, the lights will shine and it’ll spin and take off. Hurry it’s time!’

‘Wait for me!’ she screamed running towards the wheel.

I think Alice has met her match 🙂 What will happen when her parents meet Billy? More next week…

All my ‘Alice’ flash fiction written for the Friday Fictioneers Challenge can be read as standalones, but if you’re interested in reading previous stories of Alice’s adventures, here  they are!

  1. Billy knows there ain’t no such thing as time portals

  2. I like the way these stories stand alone. Not many authors can perform that trick with the same characters week after week in 100 word flash fiction. You handle it deftly.

  3. I have to agree with Russell.. These stories have to stand alone in FF and they do and yet, we (I) remember the previous weeks’ stories – considering I read all the participants’, that ain’t no easy task!

  4. Wow, how ingenious writing both stand-alone pieces and part of a larger story. Very clever indeed!

  5. Dear Luccia,

    It’s not often…if at all…that I’ve fallen in love with repeat character in Friday Fictioneers…until now. It’s hard to create one that’s memorable and engaging. I think Alice has met her male counterpart. Wonderful!

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

  8. I also love the Alice stories, and like Russel said, they stand on their own and that’s not easy to do. Poor Alice, I think this time she learned that too much imagination can sometimes restrict you, not only enrich.
