Flash Fiction Friday: Secrets

“I know your secret.” Abigail crossed her arms. “What—” Her dad blinked. She held a shiny quarter. “This was under my pillow.” He swallowed. “Oh?” Little Abigail tilted her head. “You’ve been giving me these in exchange for my teeth.” “I don’t know—” She opened her dad’s closet. “Admit it. You’re the tooth fairy.” Her… Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday: Secrets

Flash Fiction Friday: Tricksters

“Is it true that Brownies play tricks on people, Wesley? Like spoil milk and break dishes?” the little girl asked. She sat, legs crossed, beneath an oak tree. Wesley scrunched his nose. “Brownies?
