May 27, 2017 Prompt – Adventures with Harrison and Mason #FlashFic

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 27, 2017 — Hey, Ho!

(Mason’s 3rd-person POV)

Hey, ho!” Mason cheered. “Gramps, I promise you won’t regret it.”

“Yay!” Jaxon bounced and ran to Gramps and hugged him. “How soon before you move in with us?”

“We’ve already worked that out,” Harrison said. “We’ll use our last day here tomorrow helping Gramps sort out and box up what he wants to keep and bring to Minneapolis. We’ll book another seat on our flight, and he’ll bring a couple suitcases with him. The boxes we’ll ship, and hire someone to deal with the rest.”

Gramps nodded. “I figured a ripping off the Band-Aid fast approach might be best.”

To be continued tomorrow using ‘No. 4C’

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).

  1. Yay, that’s the spirit, Gramps! 🙂

    I love reading stories like this, where family is important. Either birth family like in this case or a family they created themselves. And I love the thought of the parent moving in with the kids so they don’t have to be all alone…but between you and me: my mom and I would probably drive each other CRAZY if we moved in together again 😀

    But I fully intend to move in with my daughter when I’m old. Don’t tell her yet, though 😀
