I’ve combined MFtS with the Five Stories, Five Photos Challenge.
The Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge rules require you to post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or simply a short paragraph – it’s entirely up to you. Then each day, nominate another blogger to carry on this challenge. Accepting the challenge is entirely up to the person nominated, it is not a command.
Five Stories, Five Photos – Day 3: Teething Problems
Aaron looks pleased with himself. I wish Mum had taken the time to brief him before she dumped me with him.
‘I didn’t come to the French Med to eat pizza.’
That wipes the smile off his face.
‘Shouldn’t you be better at hiding your disappointment?’
He sits down.
‘I’ve never been good at improv. But I’m trying, Carys.’
‘Mum should have told me earlier. My mate Jen fancies you. It’s gross.’
Aaron rubs his face.
‘I don’t want you to play a role, okay? I deserve a real dad.’
‘I like fish.’
Cue movie star smile.
