Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers
This week’s photo prompt is provided by Yinglan Z!
Milo’s neighbor has green skin and a pointy nose. She hit Milo’s cat with her big car. Uncle Gordon was very angry, but said there was nothing he could do.
We took her chicken, Pecker, while Mrs. McGee went out to get groceries. She probably eats quinoa and broccoli. Yucky. Aunt May doesn’t make me eat all my vegetables like you do.
We waited underneath the oak tree for her to come home and notice that Pecker was gone.
We started to feel bad when she started yelling. That was how he was when Stripes didn’t come home.
We walked to her scary front door. She grabbed the chicken from Milo and we ran away.
The next day Milo’s dad brought in a box. Inside was a fluffy black cat. Mrs. McGee came inside and said the cat was for him. He named him Chicken. I don’t think the grown-ups understood.
Mrs. McGee skin isn’t green anymore, but, mom, I still think she has a pointy nose.
P.S. Can I have a cat?
I wrote two versions of this, but I think this one was the cutest. I don’t know if I did the prompt justice, though.
