Wednesday's Words on a Friday

 

The original Words for Wednesday was begun by Delores and eventually taken over by a moveable feast of participants when Delores had computer troubles. Sadly, Delores has now closed her blog forever due to other problems.

The aim of the words is to encourage us to write. A story, a poem, whatever comes to mind.

If you are posting an entry on your own blog, please let us know so we can come along to read it and add a few encouraging words.

This month the words/prompts are supplied by Cindi and can be found here

This week's prompt is: 

A picture is worth 1000 words. Write at least 100 words about the image below.


Here is my story:

"Daddy, how much longer? We've been driving for ages and must have crossed every bridge in the country by now. What if Mummy will never be able to find us? Did you tell her where we were going? Why couldn't she come too? I'm getting hungry, can we stop soon? Can we find a phone and talk to Mummy?"

"We can't stop on the bridge, Danny, you'll have to wait until we cross it. Aren't there any sandwiches or biscuits left in that bag I packed?"

"Don't want sammiches," sulkily from Danny. "I want fish and chips and a milkshake. Why isn't Mummy with us?"

"Mummy had to stay behind. You and me are going to live in a new house, all by ourselves and maybe we'll get a puppy."

  1. Ooh, a puppy. That will distract any kid. I kind of feel bad for the dad having to face these questions from his son.

    Have a lovely day.

    1. Margaret D; the puppy is a possibility and may help the boy forget.

  8. At least neither of them is afraid of crossing the bridge. I'd have to close my eyes and think about puppies. As a passenger, of course! Not as a driver. Bridges are not my thing.

    1. Val; I don't mind bridges, most bridges anyway. I'd think twice about a rope bridge over a ravine, for instance.

  9. Oh, boy, how sad. It´s always on the "back" of the kids.

  10. Interesting on many levels, at first I thought kidnapping too until you clarified. I hope you do a followup on mum.

    1. WWW; if the words or the image takes me there I could write about mum. After I work out where she is and what she is doing.
