Flash fiction - Push

22 February 2014 / Leave a Comment
The mother waited outside the classroom with sand in her shoes. She grabbed the boy by the hand as he walked past. ‘If you push Ethan again, I’ll hit you. Do you hear?’ The boy kept on walking. The next day he pushed Ethan again. Ethan didn’t tell his mum because his dad was moving out and she was in tears. The neighbours said they would help however they could, but neighbours always say those things. Then they forget. And his mum has to lift the wall-mounted clothes dryer off the wall all on her own.
