#FridayFictioneers ‘Lifesaver’ #FlashFiction #100words

I’m thrilled it’s Friday once again. Time for a new flash fiction episode for Friday Fictioneers featuring Alice, her best friend, Billy, and her parents Marsha and Kevin.

I’ve moved back in time and Alice and Billy are children again in this week’s episode. Alice is having some problems with her dad regarding a bird’s nest… Fortunately Billy comes to the rescue…  

Thank you Rochelle at Rochelle Wisoff-Fields-Addicted to Purple for this week’s prompt for hosting this fabulous weekly flash fiction challenge. Thank you   Douglas M. MacIlroy for this week’s photo prompt.


‘Dad, let me speak to her,’ said Alice.
‘What do you mean, her?’
‘She’s looking after her babies.’
He rolled his eyes. 
Alice listened. ‘She says she won’t go, not without her nest.’  
‘Birds should nest in the forest, not on my basement walls.’
‘Dad, don’t strangle her! She has babies!’
‘I’ll take them,’ said Billy.  
‘Be my guest,’ replied her dad before storming out. 
‘What are we going to do?’ Alice asked Billy.
‘Take the nest to our secret garden. They’ll be safe there until they can fly away.’
Alice jumped up and kissed Billy’s cheek. ‘You’re a lifesaver!’


All my ‘Alice’ flash fiction stories, written for the Friday Fictioneers Challenge, can be read as standalones, but if you’d like to read previous stories of Alice’s adventures, here  they are!

  1. Hi Luccia, really liked this and how you manage to introduce three characters and conflict all in 100 words with what looks like a good resolution. First Alice story I’ve read…will read more. Thank you
