#FridayFictioneers The Victorian House #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. Today, we’ll be going back to Alice’s large country house with Billy. I hope you like this new episode!

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

The Victorian House

‘Look at this rusty old bike,’ said Billy.

‘Let’s find the cloth and clean it,’ said Alice.

‘It needs more than cleaning.’

‘If we rub it with the magic cloth it’ll take us wherever we want to go!’

They searched all over the greenhouse and garden, until the afternoon slipped into sunset, but there was no sign of the cloth.

Billy hit the light switch in the porch.

‘No electricity,’ said Alice. ‘It’s a Victorian house.’

‘You live without electricity?’

‘I don’t live here.’

‘You lied?’

‘I didn’t lie. I come alive here. It’s where I write my stories.’


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!

  3. I also love the idea of coming alive when writing stories. I wonder where the bike takes them when they find the cloth.

  4. Dear Luccia,

    That last line said it all. Alice has not only a brilliant imagination but a magnificent sense of awareness. Lovely story.
