#FridayFictioneers ‘Dad’s Shoes’ #FlashFiction #100Words

I’m thrilled to be back with a new flash fiction episode for Friday Fictioneers featuring Alice and her best friend, Bill, and her parents Marsha and Kevin. Kevin has been in serious trouble for the last two weeks, and matters are getting worse.

Thank you Rochelle at Rochelle Wisoff-Fields-Addicted to Purple for this week’s prompt and for hosting this fabulous weekly flash fiction challenge. Thank you Sarah Potter for this week’s picture prompt, below.

Kevin’s Shoes

Mum came back at last, face drawn and shoulders hunched.

She slumped on a chair and dropped her head into her trembling hands.

“Where’s dad?” I asked.

She opened a travel bag and placed two worn shoes on the table, wiping her tears.

“He went inside as instructed. I waited. He didn’t come out, so I followed and found his worn shoes on the floor, Alice. Nothing else. No-one else.”

“It’s time to call the police,” said Bill. “They could help us, find evidence…”

She shook her head. “There was a note. Look.”

This has to end here. Don’t look for me.


All my ‘Alice’ flash fiction stories, 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!

    1. Yes, I do. Well, the characters are the same, but the story isn’t always a serial. It depends on the prompt and my mood. I usually jump around. The last three have been a series, but next week, who knows?When I have enough stories I’d like to organise them in a proper sequence. I’ll check yours out. Thank you for dropping by💖
