A Conversation with John

John is the supreme controller of the Ambyville Park’s flower beds. Every year, kids sneak in to pick carnations for Mother’s Day while he’s busy with a distraction; this year, I’m the ‘distraction’.

“So John, what’s your favourite part of Ambyville?”

“The park, of course; I love my bluebells, roses and lavenders.”

“Not carnations? You seem to grow lots of them.”

“Aye, if it weren’t for them, I wouldn’t get to sit with my feet up and drink unlimited lemonade, would I?”

The photo prompt has been given by Na’ama Yehuda at the Friday Fictioneers hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields and the word prompt (Control) was given by Denise Farley for the Six Sentence Stories at the Girlie on the Edge.

  4. May he enjoy his company; those who follow his bait.


  5. Sounds like John knows exactly what’s going on and enjoys it as much as the children. I love how much you show without telling it. Layers upon layers.
