Friday Fictioneers is hosted by the wonderful Rochelle, the undisputed master of what I call Sound Bite Fiction.
She sets the weekly challenge, and the standard.
Ted’s colourful image took me to one of my favourite haunts, the little café in the square.
Where happiness abounds.
The idea, as always, is to write a story of around 100 words based on the picture, below.
I am the only one who feels sorry for Peter.
He runs the carousel beside the little café in the square.
He often wanders over for a coffee.
He is a bit slow, but an okay guy.
Everyone thinks so.
Nobody connected him to the missing children.
We are appalled when his boss investigates the smell.
And finds two children under the floor of the spaceship, and another in the helicopter.
Everyone wonders how he thought he would get away with it.
Personally I think his boss is a more likely child killer.
But what do I know?
Apart from who put the kids there.
