Chicken Liver

I’m running late this week but didn’t want to miss Friday Fictioneers. A 100 words of fiction based around the photo prompt provided. Follow the link and have a go.

(Jimmy Liver Aged 9)

With the stone in his hand he looked at the window in Mrs Peabody’s front room.

The other boys circled round him shouting “throw it, throw it”

He could do it, he knew he could, he really could.

But he didn’t.

That’s when they started calling him ‘Chicken Liver’.

Over the years, ‘Chicken Liver’ never stole a kiss, never sneaked a beer or never ran a light. But ‘Chicken Liver’ knew something the others didn’t.

He knew that being brave was on the inside.

And that beneath every ‘Chicken’ costume there’s a Superhero hiding.
