It’s Friday, time for another Friday Fictioneers Flash Fiction story with adorable and creative Alice, her parents, Marsha and Kevin, and her best friend, Billy.
Kevin was kidnapped and rescued by Alice and Billy, but since his return, he’s been behaving strangely…
Thanks to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for hosting the challenge, and Dale Rogerson for today’s photo prompt, which led me directly to this weeks’ 100-word story.
“Mum, what are we doing here?”
Alice scanned the floor below, where the concert attendants were having a drink during the intermission.
Her voice trembled. “Your father is seeing someone.”
“I don’t know her name,” she said pointing at a woman standing by a table. “She’s waiting for him.”
“But dad’s visiting Uncle Ben.” He’d said he needed space after the ordeal.
Kevin strode across the hall with two wine glasses.
Her mother grabbed her arm. “Where are you going, Alice?”
“To find out what’s going on.”
Kevin’s face paled as she approached.
“Alice, I can explain.”
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!
