Flash Fiction - He kept absolutely still as the footsteps got louder


Prompt: He kept absolutely still as the footsteps got louder.

Daniel kept absolutely still as the footsteps got louder. He squeezed his eyes shut, resisting the urge to squirm or cry out. Rustling and muttering told him the search was still on.

The footsteps passed and he let out a satisfied grunt. Discovery meant defeat and he would not go down without a fight.

The world shifted and light pierced his hiding spot. He blinked at the sudden onslaught.

“Come on, sweetheart, it’s time for your bath.” Mom sighed as she plucked a pair of dirty underwear off his head. “You know the hamper is not a fort.”


Foiled again!




*Flash Fiction is fiction under a thousand words. I participate in a weekly prompt that's limited to a mere one hundred words. That's crazy short. You can check out the other participants' stories via their links on the WonHundred Word Wednesdays Facebook page here.*
