#FridayFictioneers ‘The Babysitter’ #FlashFiction
I’m thrilled to be with you yet again on Friday with my Friday Fictioneers story of Alice Pendragon and her adventures, thanks to the photo prompts and inspiration provided by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields at Friday Fictioneers. Check out this weekly challenge here.
Alice does it again. She always seems to be annoying one man or other, except Billy of course! Today we’ll be meeting her baby sitter…
Wayne looked over the counter at the waitress. “Fancy a movie when you finish here, Cheryl?”
“I’m babysitting tonight.”
“Again, with that crazy kid in her spooky old house?”
“She’s different, special really. She helped me with my French exam and my creative writing assignment.”
“I thought you were dropping out and working full-time here. We agreed to save up for a deposit on a house.”
“I’ve decided to apply for college.”
“Don’t you want us to get married?”
“I do, but I’ve decided to go to College first.”
He shook his head. “That little girl is putting weird ideas in your head.”
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!
