“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?

Flash Fiction Friday: Ding-Dong-Ditch

“Dare you to Ding-Dong-Ditch Ms. Hannity’s place.” Casper wagged his brows, his broad smile reflecting a mouth full of metal. “Nah. We’re eleven, now. Let’s do something fun.” Jared cast a wary eye at the old woman’s house. Its run-down exterior and overgrown lawn gave him the creeps.

Amelia walked the familiar route to work just like she did every Tuesday. Down Sixth Street, west on College Avenue, to the corner stop light on Trade Street.

“Will you just come out, Philip?” Hazel crosses her arms with a huff. “No.” His voice is squeaky. “I’m too afraid.” “We’ve been through this. There’s nothing to be afraid of.” She sinks to her knees so she can see him eye-to-eye. “What if I see it?” His voice trembles but she sees movement from… Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday: Pr-hog-nosticate
