Flash Fiction: There isn’t a standard specific definition for this term beyond “extremely short”, but for the purposes of my “Flash Fiction Friday” posts it will mean a precisely 100-word story scene written from a photo prompt.
Today’s prompt picture is:
Here’s another installment for Adventures with Harrison and Mason (Click the corresponding category for more of their stories).
Scritch, scritch, scritch. The muted and unsettling noise came from behind Harrison and sent a shiver down his spine. Mason leaned to the side to look around his husband.
“I’m afraid to ask,” Harrison said.
Mason grinned. “I have no idea what Jaxon is doing.”
Harrison turned around and saw a fork being manipulated underneath the door by a small set of fingers.
“What are you doing?” Harrison asked.
“I’m going to catch a mouse,” was Jaxon’s muffled reply.
Harrison would have asked why, but Mason spoke first.
“What are you going to do with it when you catch it?”
