I’ve always loved Fridays, but since I’ve started being a Friday Fictioneer, well I look forward to them even more! I stare at the picture, think of Alice, and search for Alice’s newest adventure…
Thanks to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for hosting the challenge and Liz Young for today’s photo prompt, which led me directly to this weeks’ 100-word story.
The Secret Garden
Alice rushed outside pulling Billy’s arm. ‘I want to show you where she lives.’
‘Someone else lives here?’
‘ Who is she?’
‘I don’t know. I’ve tried to talk to her, but she ignores me. She might listen to you.’
Billy chased Alice through the rickety gate and into the secret garden. She sat on the wooden bench and patted the seat beside her. ‘Let’s wait for her here. She’ll be coming out soon.’
Billy sat. ‘Perhaps she doesn’t want to talk to us.’
‘We’ll have to convince her.’
‘She knows all about the goblins and wizards.’
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!
