Hide n’ Seek

“Where are you going at this time of the morning?”

“To play Hide n’ Seek.”

“In this weather?”

“Of course, what better time to hide in plain sight?”

“Alright, just don’t get lost. We won’t be able to find you.”


We’re entering smog season again where lower temperatures and pollution create a smoky screen everywhere.

The photo prompt has been given by Roger Bultot at the Friday Fictioneers hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields and the word prompt (Meter) has been given for the Six Sentence Stories hosted by Denise Farley.

  5. Nice twist on hide and seek. One doesn’t want to get lost if one can’t be found in the bad weather.

  7. No smog here, at least not often. My kids stuck with “ghost in the graveyard,” are version of hide and seek played after dark with flashlights. Kids will find something fun to do.

    *the quote came to mind and, as I often do, I took time to look it up and it’s from the play (Hamlet) that plays the central role in my own Six!

  15. Dear Bernadette,

    That’s heavy smog when you can hide in plain sight. Hopefully a solution can be found.
