#FridayFictioneers Hide and Seek #FlashFiction

It’s Friday, time for another Friday Fictioneers Flash Fiction story with adorable and creative Alice, her incredulous and conventional parents, Marsha and Kevin, and her best friend, Billy, whom we met last week. Today, we’ll be seeing where Alice lives (see photo below). I hope you like this new episode!

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

Hide and Seek 


Billy’s eyes narrowed.  ‘You live there?’ 

Alice nodded and held her breath. 

Billy shrugged, obviously unimpressed. ‘I’d better be going home.’ 

It was a hideous, old house, but Alice didn’t want to lose her new friend, so she decided to point out some advantages. ‘There’s an indoor pool, viewing room, and tons of video games!’ 

‘Bye, Alice,’ he said, walking away. 

She had to stop him, so she told him her secret. ‘There are wizards, goblins, treasure maps and hiding places…’ 

Billy’s eyes beamed. ‘Really?’ 

Alice pushed the iron gates.  

‘Race you to the door!’ he challenged. ‘Last one’s ‘it!’’   


I think Alice and Billy are going to have fun in that stunning mansion. 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!

  8. Good thing that Billy doesn’t need more than a little kick. Kids these days, no? The kids I knew (and I) would have loved to explore an old house like that. Very cute. Alice gets the knack of using her imagination at the right time.
