Eyes that move – Friday Fictioneers – 4 July

We come to another Wednesday which to 100 or so hardy souls means it is time to fib.

This week Claire Fuller is the photo supply culprit.

“Miss Alice wants it in the back garden!” Jenner snapped.

Jenner stared at the ground for a moment then slowly turned his head to shoot Henry a real look of annoyance.

“Let’s just get it done.”

“I wouldn’t want this ol’ thing in my yard!”

“Why not?”

“That’s bugs eating the lychen and moss.”

“I dunno.”

“BOOO!” Jenner shouted.

Dammit Jenner!
