The Early Morning Stroll

She walked along the brightly lit street and peeked through the shop windows. “Blue curtains for that and mistletoe on the doorway for this.”


She twisted around and came face to face (or almost, since he was a bit taller) with a green dinosaur.

“Han, stop messing around here; you know you’re not supposed to be anywhere near the dollhouse,” she said pushing the dinosaur into a nearby store just as the lights came on.


“Julie! How many times do I tell you to not touch my toys.”

The photo prompt has been given by CEAyr at the Friday Fictioneers hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. The word prompt (Twist) has been given by Denise Farley at the Girlie on the Edge.

  1. That was quite feat, squeezing a dinosaur into this


    1. Well, it’s hard to say ‘no’ to a dinosaur.


  2. Lovely take. I enjoy how kids have no boundaries or reality when playing with toys. Dinosaur in a dolls house – why not?!


    1. Yup. Though I guess the dinosaur had it tough since his head kept bumping against the roof.

  4. Dear Bernadette,

    Children are blessed with such brilliant imaginations. Too bad they have to grow into adults. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Well done.




    1. Thanks Rochelle. Though not sure if all lose their brilliant imaginations when they grow up.


  5. What a wonderful place a child’s imagination can be! Glad you slipped in the green dinosaur ๐Ÿ™‚


  6. A child, like a writer, can make his story any way he pleases. Loved this.


    1. So true! And to think there aren’t many (popular) books written by kids.


      1. Huh. Never thought about that. The first one that came to mind was “The Diary of Anne Franke,” which was not fiction at all.
