Saturday Shorts: Foiled

I’ve missed a couple of Saturday Shorts, but they’re back!

Today’s was written a while ago, based on a challenge to write a story in exactly 50 words.

I hope you enjoy this brief read.

Foiled

I made faces at the dark window, laughing at my reflection.

Headlights appeared outside. My parents? I leaned against the window, watching.

My reflection grabbed my hand and dragged me in.

I screamed in soundless rage as not-me greeted my parents like she hadn’t seen them in ages.

Foiled again.
