It’s Friday, time for another Friday Fictioneers Flash Fiction story.
Today’s story takes us back to when Alice was a teenager. She’s on an outing with her parents, Kevin and Marsha and her best friend Billy.
Thanks to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for hosting the challenge, and Karen Rawson for today’s photo prompt, which led me directly to this weeks’ 100-word story.
Kevin looked up the steep, weathered stairs. “I’m not going up there, Alice.”
“But its a great hiding place dad,” she said, racing up to the rundown cabin and slipping out of sight.
Kevin dropped to the ground as his wife arrived. “Where’s Alice?”
He nodded towards the cabin. “And Bill?” he asked.
Marsha shrugged. “I’d guess he’s up there too.”
Kevin tried to get up and winced. “We’ll have to climb up somehow.”
“Lets wait here, Kevin. They’ll be back soon.”
“Not soon enough.”
Marsha giggled. “Do you remember when we…”
Kevin groaned. “I’m trying very hard not to.”
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!
