I came across this list of writing prompts for May, 2017 on the Writer’s Write page and thought I’d give it a whirl. I’m going to try for a series of drabbles (precisely 100-word scenes) that will flow together featuring the characters from my Adventures with Harrison and Mason flash fiction story scenes.
May 24, 2017 — Can Opener
(Harrison’s 3rd-person POV)
When Harrison and Mason opened the front door, Jaxon ran out of the kitchen with a huge smile on his face. “I helped make dinner!”
“I’ll bet,” Mason said. “Daddy always says you’re such a great helper.”
“Remember, I helped bake you a rainbow birthday cake?”
“I do! It was yummy and beautiful at the same time.”
“I got to turn the crank on the can opener because Gramps’ hands hurt when he does it, but not mine.”
Mason turned sad eyes toward Harrison. Harrison nodded. “I’ll talk to him. Maybe he’s holding back, thinking he’d be intruding on us.”
To be continued tomorrow using ‘a toy.’
All the drabbles in this series using the May, 2017 prompts can be found here (note: to read them in order, you’ll need to scroll to the bottom of the category list and read up from there).
