Reaching for Toys

“Stretch! Just a little bit more. Still a few minutes before she arrives.”

“I’m trying… but it’s out of reach. It would’ve been easier to break them out of a vault.”

“Susie, Dan, leave those toys alone.”


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