Very Short Mondays: Scarecrow

Ingredients: two broom handles, lots of strong, a couple of nails, some old rags and a football.

And a childlike enthusiasm for adventure.

This would never make a convincing replica, but Alishia didn't care.  She was going exploring today.  And that was all that mattered.

Very Short Mondays: The Boy Who Ran Home With Dirty Knees

Must.  Keep.  Running.

Mustn't.  Stop.

He'd never been caught before.

Oh God, this was exhausting.

He was scratched from crawling under the fence.  He could feel its sting in the skin on his knees.

His knees were filthy.

How was he going to explain this to Mum?  She'd kill him.

More to the point, how was he supposed to smuggle this satchel past her eagle eyes?

He wasn't supposed to visit Grandad.

It was forbidden.

Very Short Mondays: The Long Way Round The Coffee Table

Back on schedule!  Here we go...

The Long Way Round The Coffee Table

Jonas put the remote control down, slowly.  He took off his 3D glasses, but it made no difference.  He stood up and walked the long way round the coffee table, out of arm's reach of the television.  Never turning his back for a second.  He picked up the rifle he kept behind the door, and aimed it at the TV.  He fired, and kept firing, until they stopped reaching for him.

He always knew they'd come, but this...

This was a surprise.
