Friday Fictioneers – Home Security

10 October, 2018

Oh, hello you. Yes I know it’s Wednesday but I’m fully under the influence of the Cool Kids now, so here we go.

Rochelle sent us one of her own pics this week:

and as is compulsory traditional round these parts, 100 words have been written, shared with the Frog, and posted below…

 

 

Peter came back to the lounge, sat down.

“Who was at the door?” Pauline asked.

“Walter from next door.”

Pauline shared an anxious look with Percy.

“It’s okay,” Peter said, “I sent him away.”

“But…” Percy said, “surely he’ll be back…”

“That Walter guy gives me the creeps,” Pauline said, “just like William from our time on Wood Avenue.”

“Or Wilfred on Straw Street,” Percy added, “he was even worse.”

“Relax,” Peter said flicking the TV off mute, “we’re living on Stone Square now, a much safer neighbourhood.”
He lifted his feet onto a stool and contentedly scratched his chinny-chin-chin.
