Flash Fiction #48

I was inspired by something that occurred recently... Hope you enjoy! ^^


"Britt! Jen! Do you have everything with you? Your allowance?"

Jen looked through the screen door. "Yes, Mom."

Britt had their mom inspect her backpack and put a cap on her head before opening up the door to let her go. "Be home as soon as the math class finishes for dinner. Jen, you do have the money to get you and your younger sister lunch, right?"

"Of course, Mom. I just said that I did."

Their mother pointed at Britt and Jen and yelled, "Be sure to hold your sister's hand, Britt!"

Britt looked down as their mom's voice carried across their neighbourhood, and she was sure their neighbours heard her. She held her older sister's hand.

"Mom's a worrywart, but there's no worry. We both have each of our backs, right?"

Britt nodded, smiling. "Does Mom have to remind us every time we leave by ourselves though? I get so embarrassed."

"I was like that too, but I think it's just her way of showing she cares about us." Jen said, trying to be wise. "Maybe."

Both sisters bursted out in laughter.

They passed by a convenience store, and Britt asked, "What are we going to eat for lunch? Hamburger and chips?"

"Of course. It's too good to pass it by." Jen agreed, and then laughed.

"What's so funny?!" Britt looked up at her older sister, tugging at her hand.

"Before I say what I was just thought, why do you think Mom gives us money to buy our lunch?"

 Britt replied, "I don't know."

"Well... I think she's busy with her work, but maybe she wants us to treasure the value of money as well as buy something healthy. But you and I both know that's never going to happen!"

"Yup!" Britt laughed. "Junk food! Yay!"

When they were near the school, they stopped by a supermarket and decided to pick the most unhealthy junk food for their lunch.

Writing Prompt: Have someone looking for something that is lost.

Hope you enjoy!


Maria ran up and down the street as she stared intensely for the bracelet that she had gotten as a gift. "Where is it? I can't believe I lost it!" She screamed at herself from within. She could feel the rush in the heart beat, and beads of sweat forming on her forehead and back of the neck.

"I'm sure it must be here somewhere. I checked at home, and at school. I couldn't find it anywhere. How can I be so careless?"

Maria cried when she realized the bracelet was lost, and wanted to cry even more while running around. "I can't cry. Tears won't find my bracelet."

When she saw a bracelet near an alleyway, she jumped at it with disappointment. "It's just some junk." She lowered her head at her bad luck, but she got up with renewed enthusiasm unwilling to show defeat.

After walking down the same route from her home to school for thirty minutes…

Maria jumped up and down, wrapping arms with her teammates as her softball team won the game. "Good job, everyone!"

Her teammates reciprocated the cheerfulness, and celebrated the come back from behind win. Maria noticed Sarah and Taylor coming towards her from the stands, and ran towards them. "Thank you both for coming out! It means a lot to me cheering for us in this type of game."

"No problem. It was really entertaining." Sarah hugged her younger sister, congratulating her.

"That diving catch that you made in the field in the ninth inning was so clutch! I wish I had my camera to take a photo. Good job, Maria." Taylor brushed her hair.

Maria froze for a split second as Taylor was making a mess of her hair. She was glad that she was hiding her face in Sarah's shoulder with that moment, as it started to turn red. She tipped her hat down to try to hide as much of her face as she stepp…

"I don't understand this problem at all!" Maria took her eraser and removed her answer to the math question in her notebook. There were already markings from previous attempts, and she scratched her hair in frustration. "I give up. I'm going to ask Sarah for help."

Maria took her textbook and notebook, and walked down the hallway to her older sister's bedroom. She yelled as she opened the door, "Sarah! Can you please help me with this problem? I've been stuck for 30 minutes already!"

Maria's mouth dropped open, and her eyes wide with shock as she witnessed Sarah and her boyfriend in a make-out session on the bed. Sarah noticed her younger sister at the doorway, and gently pushed her boyfriend away from her, frazzled.  "Maria, the least you can do is knock!"

Maria blushed at the sight and thought of her sister and her boyfriend kissing, and bowed. &qu…
