Friday Fictioneers 2nd June 2017

Check out Rochelle’s post for this week’s challenge:


She looked down at the toys and wept.
Not allowed to touch, she looked at Bru and the tiny hands that had clasped the bear to her chest in delight.
Chim was her second favourite, the two stuffed toys constant companions either in the pram, cot or playpen.
Dol was the latest addition, and as such still a novelty.
Now, all three were charred reminders of a blazing inferno and night of terror.
‘Momma?’ she asked.
‘Do you think they felt any pain as they burned?’

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
