Sunday Photo Fiction – A Child’s View

Every week, a new photo is used as a prompt for a piece of fiction in around 200 words. If you want to have a look at the challenge, then go to Sunday Photo Fiction, and if you want to read what others have written, then go through this link.

I sit watching mummy putting her make up on, she puts more on one side of her face where she hurt herself when her and daddy were shouting. I don’t know how she did it, but daddy hurt his hand as well. It’s odd that they both hurt themselves at the same time. Daddy wants to stroke mummy’s face but she moves away quickly. I think he made her jump.

Yay, we’re going to the seaside. I love the seaside. They have telescopes and boats and I can throw stones in the water.

I ask for some money for the telescope, and I run ahead of mummy and daddy. I put the coins in the telescope and look through it. I look at the boys and girls playing in the water, and they look strange. They look like they have wings. I turn the camera and look at mummy and daddy and I am scared. Mummy looks so beautiful, but daddy looks horrid. He has the face of an evil man.

I step away from the telescope and a strange man tells me it is a telescope of true sight. It shows the soul of the person.

  1. Some folks seem to be able to see the truth without that telescope.
    Just watched an NCIS episode where it was the child who was evil.
    And another where the abused child had developed a split personalty to try and save themselves. Eek.
