tiny tale #60: Amy’s mischief!

Amy’s mama had always told her to stay away from the “thing”.
It was her father’s last invention… before he disappeared.
That fateful day, she disobeyed her mama and twiddled with the “thing”.
All of a sudden, the “thing” sprung to life.
Amy was stunned to see her long-lost father!

So what so you think?

Would it be a happy reunion?


Did her mother know it would get him back? Is that why she forbade Amy from touching it?

  1. Hmmm… now I have some theories 😁. What if the mama knew the father was in the β€œthing” and she didn’t want him to be back, so she forbade amy from touching it because it could bring him back? 😁

    1. Ohh my God! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I still can’t stop laughing. Looks like Amy’s in a whole lot of trouble. I’d love to hear your other theories. How and where have you been, Ameena? I’ve missed you! ❀️


    1. Haha honestly speaking, my intention was that it was a pleasant surprise. Her mom had already lost her husband and she didn’t want to lose her daughter too!
      But everybody saw it the other way! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Including my own mom!!! Anyhow, reader’s imagination has the final word. 😁 Thanks for reading, Pooja! β€οΈπŸ˜ƒ

      1. Haha. Me? More optimistic? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Lol that can’t be the case. Maybe my writing seemed to point to the fact that her mother might be the villain in the story. But that’s one of the best parts of flash fiction. Everyone can draw their own conclusion and be happy with it. That’s better than feeling let down by how the story goes, right?

    1. Hey maybe, her mother was scared of the thing because it took away her father. She didn’t want to lose her daughter too. πŸ˜‰ That’s another interpretation. That was mine, but all my readers seem to think otherwise. πŸ˜‚ Ohh, he may not be real too. Not that’s a great interpretation! Explains why her mother was scared. Anyhow, Amy could be in trouble. Thanks for reading. πŸ˜„


    1. Wow. That’s a couple of great theories! It could be a time travel. It could be a sort of contraption that could hold one captive. It could be a key to an alternate universe. It could even be something that’s capable of creating one’s evil twin. πŸ˜‚ Maybe, that wasn’t really her dad at all. πŸ™ƒ
      Thank you so much for the continued support. Thanks a lot, Aadhira! β€οΈπŸ˜„
