Time for this week’s new episode of Friday Fictioneers featuring Alice and her best friend, Billy.
Alice’s dad, Kevin, has been rescued, but they still don’t know why the whole family is in danger.
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 Roger Bultot for this week’s photo prompt.
