Monday_Flash_Banner

What a great photo for this week’s edition of Monday Flash Fiction! Avery was very excited to see where her story would go. Not trying to spoil anything, but she decided to skip the sad ending. *thank goodness*

Feel free to check out the group’s Facebook page here.

The stories are to be no more than 500 words (shh, this one’s a bit over), and are to be based on the picture prompt.

I hope that you enjoy this week’s story!
