I’m manically writing lesson plans, searching for socks and freezing curries. Ever grateful for the distraction that is Friday Fictioneers. A 100 word (give or take) piece of fiction based on the photo prompt provided. When you’re drowning in the stormy seas of life just take 5 mins to join the party. Follow the link, escape the world and sit awhile and savour.

“Your name?”

“Serena Duvell” (The needle rapidly peeked across the screen)

The examiner raised a brow and asked again,

“Your real name?”

“Ethel Brown” (The needle remained static)

“How old are you?”

“27” (Another peak, another raised eyebrow)

Lowering her voice,

“68” (static)

“Where were you on the night of the 17th?”

“At home” (static)

“Who were you with?”

“Bill” (static)

“Did you kill Bill Davies?”

“No” (rapid peak)

“Do you know who killed Bill Davies?”

“Yes” (static)


“Serena Duvell” (static)
