Fiendishly clever Matt over at The Book Blogger has started to make his song choices for the Flash Fiction Foray tie in with topical events. With UK schools getting ready for the summer holiday his challenge is to create a 100 word piece of fiction based on School’s Out, by Alice Cooper. Here is a clip to get you in the mood:
I went back in time to war-torn Crete for my tale last week, but for this piece I’m bang up to date:
‘Dad, why are you emptying my satchel?’
‘School’s out for summer, no more pencils, no more books. I’m borrowing it as hand luggage on the plane tomorrow.’
‘You’ll look like a sissy. I hope my mates don’t see me with you. Where are you taking it? Dad, why have you taken it into your study.’
‘I’ll give it back tomorrow.’
‘I won’t need a satchel in Greece!’
‘Mum, do you think Dad looks silly walking through the airport with my satchel?’
‘Shush, he needed a bag to carry close. It’s full of Euros, enough to last us two weeks.’
Support Greece, book a last-minute holiday to grab a fabulous deal. Crete is open, and a warm welcome awaits you with plenty of food under a cobalt blue sky.
