Welcome to this week’s posting for Friday Fictioneers, a group of people who write a piece of fiction in around 100 words based on a photo prompt. The group is hosted byRochelle Wissoff-Fields and you are cordially invited to read, and comment and join in too if you feel like having a go! You can find the story beneath the photo prompt below, I hope you enjoy it.
Pip (100 Words)
My kid brother, allergic to everything, afraid of nothing; all pink, scaly skin and bloody, cracking scabs. Pip went everywhere I did; always with that bag – his emergency injection.
When the ball sailed over the high brick wall, Pip handed me his bag. Standing on my shoulders, he scrambled on top, dropping with a thud to the other side. We never thought of how he would climb back out. He kicked the ball over – then screamed as they swarmed all over him. Desperately, futilely, I searched for a way in, Pip’s precious bag hanging useless from my shoulder.
