After a 2 week intermission (finals!) I’m back to Friday Fictioneers! Every Friday, writers from all around the world write 100 word (or thereabouts) flash fiction based on a photo posted that Wednesday on Rochelle Wisoff-Fields’ blog.
Here’s my story this week. I welcome constructive criticism; without it I cannot grow as a writer. Thanks for reading!
Also, I need your help with tracking and recovering a 4 story tall solar balloon-see the project website for details!
I’ve been waiting for you to come home for hours.
Didn’t you notice my food bowl is empty?
My favorite toys somehow ended up under the couch
and all these new decorations
(some of which I took the liberty to swat from the table)
what are they doing here?
And how could you bring over this other creature,
nowhere near as elegant and pretty as me,
giving it attention better reserved for the lord of this household-me?
Who are you trying to impress?
That other creature, ugly like you, and with longer hair?
