Easily Flushed Blog Hop

       I have a short fictional piece for today’s Easily Flushed Blog Hop. You can visit the rest of the entries at the hosting blog Reading, Writing and Loving it.  Thank you Cassie Mae for having this!

The Shot

Right after school, it was already dark.

He asked,

“Will it hurt?

How many do I need?”

And, “Will it leave a mark?”

In the waiting room we played and we joked.

He asked,

“Does it feel like this?”

With a pinch.

“Or this,” with a poke.

While the nurse led us through the hall.

He shouted,

“Don’t hurt me!”

And he flopped down in a sprawl.

There was no where to hide so I covered my eyes.

I asked,

“Dad, would you please get up?”

and added,

“After, you’ll get a prize!”
