Out of whack – a tiny tale

Little Jimmy was excited. He kept pacing around as he waited for his father to come home. He couldn’t wait to show off his handiwork. At last, when his father came home, Jimmy led him to the garage to unveil his latest project. Jimmy smiled smugly as he saw his father gape at his creation.
“Jimmy…wha..what have you done to my bike?”
“I just took it apart and put it back together, daddy”
“What about those parts lying around on the side?”
“Oh, those were the parts that wouldn’t fit in. So I removed them. They didn’t look good anyway!”

This post was written in response to the Friday Fictioneers photo prompt hosted by the lovely Rochelle. The Friday Fictioneers challenge is to write a complete story – beginning, middle and end in 100 words or less, based on the given photo prompt. A huge thanks to Rochelle for hosting this challenge.

Poor Jimmy might have meant well but he definitely didn’t make things better for his father (and his unfortunate bike!)

  1. Hahaha, loved it. I can only imagine how much fun it would be for the child to use his creativity and build something amazing. I hope his dad wouldn’t mind 😀
