A Different Kind Of Ball

Time again for the fabulous Friday Fictioneers. A 100 words (give or take) of fiction based around the photo prompt provided. My last few attempts have been quite deep so thought I’d lighten up a little this week. A change is as good as a rest, or so they say.

He picked up the shoe she’d lost. He’d find her again. He knew it.

Turning it over he read the label –Male, size 14, xxx wide fit.

“She must have a brother”!
