Flash Fiction for the Practical Practitioner
“It’s there again!” he said, peering out beyond the window shade.
“The green bicycle.” Whispered.
“Oh for God’s sake, Sam, grow up.”
“But it’s a spy bike,” he assured his mother. “Really.”
“It’s a bike, nothing more.” She swished back into the kitchen.
“It’s not,” he whispered, still watching.
A window above the bike opened and a boy dropped to the sidewalk. He jumped on the bike and pedaled quickly away.
Sam ran to the door. He was just about to step outside, when his mother called.
“Sam! Come back and finish your supper!”
Sulking, he slunk back to the table. “Spies don’t eat peas.”
“Of course they do, Sam. That’s what makes them so sneaky!”
Funny! Parents are usually a step ahead of their child, and they child wonders how. 🙂
