Flash Fiction Bonus

Hi Everyone,  I don’t normally post two posts in one day, but my good friend, Laura of Caffeinated Fiction has a birthday today, and she even announced her age, brave woman!

In connection with her age, she issued a challenge I couldn’t pass up.  She is 42 years old today and challenged her blog readers and writing friends to write a Flash Fiction Story with 42 words or less, and stipulated that it must contain the word “birthday”.  (I love the idea!)

Well, anyone who knows me, knows that I cannot pass up a writing challenge, so here is my 42 word birthday flash fiction story for Laura:

Another foster home. Her tenth birthday. She had no expectations.

“Dinner!” New foster mom called.

Foster mom cleared the table and returned from the kitchen.

“Surprise!” Foster Mom carried a cake with candles. Foster Dad pulled a gift from under the table.
