TLT: Boredom Buster

I only went to the party because I was bored out of my skull, and that’s why I talked to the peculiar guy who was leaning against the wall, too. 

I told him to go ahead when he told me he did magic tricks and would I want to see one, expecting him to maybe produce a flower from behind my ear – it took me a moment to realise he’d begun to float.

Now I come to see him every day, trying to figure out how he does it – I keep failing but hey, I haven’t been bored in weeks.

National Flash Fiction Day 2020

“Aw, look at this one.”

Marie points at a bunny rabbit. Their twitchy noses are kind of sweet, but I don’t want a bunny rabbit.

This is the beginning of my story Cats and Dogs – you can read the whole thing here on FlashFlood. I’ve only read a handful of stories so far. Anyone else got one on there today? Pop me a link in the comments if you do.

If you missed out on the FlashFlood, there’s another opportunity to get a story published at the Write-In, too.
