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, Alice is at Billy’s house, where they were having some pizza just when her mother arrived to pick her up. Everyone likes pizza, right? Or do they? I hope you like this new episode!
Thanks to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for hosting the challenge, and Dale Rogerson for today’s photo prompt, which led me directly to this weeks’ 100-word story.
Have some pizza!
“Perhaps your mother would like to come in,” said Billy’s mother.
I rushed to the door. “Thank you, but my mother’s always in a hurry.”
“There’s still plenty of pizza,” said Billy expectantly.
The day my mother ate pizza would be the day the stars fell from the sky.
Too late. I opened the door, hugged my mother and pulled her arm towards the car.
“Mrs. Pendragon,” said Billy’s mother. “Please come in.”
My mother was too polite to decline.
“Could I tempt you with some pizza?”
I looked up at the evening sky, some stars were about to fall.
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!
