It’s Friday, time for another Friday Fictioneers Flash Fiction story.
Kevin has been behaving strangely since he was kidnapped and rescued by Alice and Billy.
Last week, Alice and her mother caught Kevin on a date with another woman. This week he has some explaining to do…
Thanks to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for hosting the challenge, and Yarnspinnerr for today’s photo prompt, which led me directly to this weeks’ 100-word story.

“I’m listening, dad. Explain.”
“Alice, this is Clara. We met many years ago, before you were born.”
Alice folded her arms over her chest and stared at her father, ignoring the stylish woman by his side.
“I was in Mexico, with my mother, looking for my father.”
“Nice try. Did you forget your father died when you were a baby?”
“The truth is he left us and returned to his native Mexico.”
Alice shivered. “Mexico?”
“He had another family there.”
Alice’s arms fell to her side. “What?”
“Clara is your aunt, my stepsister.”
Alice’s head spun.
“Clara needs our help, Alice.”
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!
