Out of touch

This week’s photo prompt by Renee Heath

Out of touch

“How long do we have to stay outside, Dad?”

“Not long.They’ll soon go.”

“They’re weird – the way they wander around, with one arm raised. Is that their war dance? Are they praying? What are they anyway?”

“You don’t want to know. Just be patient and keep your head down.”

“But it’s prickly and the ants are biting and I don’t want those creatures going in our teepee. It’s ours, not theirs, and my toys are in there. When will they leave?”

“As soon as they realise there’s no phone reception out here no matter how far they search.”


Another 100 word story (actually only 99) for Friday Fictioneers, hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields.
