#FridayFictioneers ‘Family’ #FlashFiction #100words

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.


His pale blue irides darkened mirroring the stormy sky.
“Has he spoken?” asked Bill.
“Not yet.”
His fiery eyes stared beyond the horizon, his pale face, carved in stone.
“How are you dad?”
“I never thought I’d see the sunset again,” he muttered absently, then turned to me. “Alice, you shouldn’t have rescued me. We’re all in danger now.”
I hugged his stiff waist.
“We’re a family, dad. We look after each other. If one of us is in danger, we all help.”
He shook in my arms. I never thought I’d be so relieved to hear my father cry.


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!
