Flash Fiction on SatSunTails

If you haven't dropped by Rebecca Clare Smith's Journal, do so! Her #SatSunTails are a great way to light up your brain every once in awhile--a 150 word flash fiction contest, inspired by a photo, posted directly in the comments of her blog, and tweeted to the high heavens.

My very very short story garnered an honorable mention today, and you can read it here! Here's the first bit of the story, just to entice you . . .
Everybody else took off ten minutes ago. If I don’t leave soon, I’ll never catch up. The girl had run by first, screaming as usual—then the boy. He’d fallen behind from trying to pull his pants back up.
Chuck and Sara were the first on their tails. Chuck laughed at me in passing. I stuck my tongue out at him and got back to searching in the tall grass. Dragging myself around by the arms sucked. If I didn’t find my legs soon, I’d never hear the end of it.
 . . . see the photo that inspired this story and read the conclusion on Rebecca's blog :) Go writers!
