AnElephantCant tell if this plane
Has wide enough seats to squeeze in his wee bum so
He sits on the wing
Has a swing and a sing
And – wait for it! – pretends he is Dumbo on a Jumbo
Once again it is Friday Fictioneer time.
Piloted weekly by Captain Rochelle, who charts a course for amazing aviatory adventures from her air-raising acolytes.
And AnElephant remains earthbound.
The idea is to write a very short story, circa 100 words, based on this picture prompt (below).
Fear of Flying
She wakens in a state of absolute dread, certain of the disaster to come.
All the way to the airport she begs him not to go, to at least postpone his flight.
She has a premonition of death, and her sixth sense is powerful.
She weeps at Departures, knowing in her heart she will never see him again.
Two hours later she is still in the viewing area, watching as his plane disappears over the Alps.
As she returns to her car, the boy snatches her handbag, thrusting her into the concrete pillar.
She never comes out of the coma.
