Friday Fictioneers – Another Grapevine
My second story for Friday Fictioneers (a day late, I know) and this time I managed 100 words 🙂 Enjoy!
Sappy, oozing stuff bubbles out from the battered branches. A tiny face leans in to look. A pudgy finger pokes it. It wibbles and wobbles. The boy’s mouth opens into a broad toothless grin. A giggle erupts from his very bowels. He teeters and totters as he starts to fall. He reaches for the branches. They give way under the strain and he comes down with a thump. His face creases into a wail. He opens his chubby little hand and lets out a roar of laughter. A blob of the oozy stuff froths amongst the bits on his palm.
