Friday Fictioneers – The School Trip

Every week, the lovely Rochelle shares a donated photo so we can write a story in 100 words using the image as a prompt. Not always as easy as it sounds.

If you want to have a go, then click on the Friday Fictioneers image, and if you want to read what others have written, then click on the frog icon.

Gerry could not stop smiling at the irony. The schoolchildren said “ooh” and “ahh” as they watched the wheat turn to white flour, and then added food colour granules, which turned the flour red. One of the children asked if he used other colours as well, and Gerry replied saying he often used blue and green, and on occasion mixed them all.

The tour came to a finish and the kids waited by their bus. One child asked where Mr Wheatley had gone, and Gerry said “You head back to school with your escort. Mr Wheatley is milling around somewhere.”

    • Yeah, I didn’t realise until reading it late last night that some of what I had taken was a hint that he had been shoved into the mill

    • Thanks Iain. At first I thought they were something to do with pottery, and was going to mix up some C4 or something. This was much more fun 🙂
