Lord have mercy! It’s Friday Fictioneers again! Every Friday, writers from all around the world write 100 word (or thereabouts) flash fiction based on a photo posted that Wednesday on Madison Wood’s blog.

“Dad. My dad’s driving.” He frowned slightly. “It’s already getting dark. See you in bit, okay?”
