FLASH FICTION, WITH A TWIST

If you’re into flash fiction, here is a prompt for you.  It is being sponsored by my publisher over at bardandbook.com, and, can you believe it, they asked me to write the prompt for this month!  I know, right!

The way we intend this to work is different from your usual flash fiction.  Instead of each participant writing a whole story of 500 words or so, each participant will contribute a paragraph or two (or even a tweet or two) and then when the story gets up to around 3000 words or so, we will cut it off.  Let’s see how this works.

So, here is your prompt:

Sarah and Chloe played with dolls, crayons, and a vast array of colorful toys.  Time stood still for them, until there was a knock at the door.  “No one else is supposed to be home,” Chloe said to her friend Sarah, her eyes widened in fright.  Sarah, though, had already turned the knob to open the door.  What happened next has been a matter of debate for some time.
