Hello! (gasping for breath) here I am with a short story (within 200 words) for the Sunday Photo Fiction (22/5/16).
“Pia!” Molly snatched the glass from her.
“I never had a blue drink before.” Pia said sulkily.
“How was it?” Sid flicked it a longing look but a glare from Molly quelled him.
“Papa will be back with his guests any minute.” Molly fretted while Pia was quite unconcerned. But then she was barely 4 years old. “He will be very angry.” Molly warned.
Pia’s lower lip trembled and tears filled her eyes.
Sid rushed to help. “If I tilt the table like this, Uncle may not notice anything.”
“Sid!” Molly rushed to stop him, casting an agonized glance at the French windows. “Do you want to break the glasses?”
Chastened, Sid busied himself with a rubber band. Pia wandered over to him. “I want to play too.”
Molly looked at them in disgust – why did she always have to clean up after them?
Molly picked up a glass of water. She stretched up on her toes, and with her tongue sticking out, poured it over the blue drink. After a quick level check, she topped the yellow drink as well.
Molly smiled in relief. Now, nobody would realize anything was amiss.
Not quite sure if I am in time or not but still, here goes - do let me know how it was!
