‘Can I go on the twisters Mummy?’
‘You’ve no tickets left sweetheart.’
‘I have.’ Misty pulled a string of tickets from her pocket.
‘Where did you get those?’
‘I found them on the floor.’
The lie settled over Misty like a cloud. It crept under her skin, warming her blood. That lady will never notice. She was too busy eating her burger to pay any attention to her bag. It was easy pickings.
Misty’s sweet smile revealed nothing as she gazed up at her mother. Baby blue eyes blinking in the sun.
Misty ran off squealing with delight.
To my fellow fictioneers, I managed to have my first flash fiction piece called ‘Sometimes I Smoke’ published in the Cabinet of Heed online magazine. It’s just over 200 words. Click the link if you can spare a minute to have a quick read. Thanks!
This piece was written for the Friday Fictioneers hosted by the lovely Rochelle Wisoff-Fields – Addicted to Purple.
Each week a photo prompt is given and the challenge is write a flash fiction piece of no more than one hundred words.
