FLASH FICTON FOR THE PURPOSEFUL PRACTITIONER
Johnnie and Alfie
“Johnnie, let’s cut through here to get to the store,” Alfie said.
“This is not a good neighborhood, Alfie. It’s dangerous to walk through it.”
“Come on Johnnie, just this one time.”
“Alright, but we better be careful.”
“We don’t have far to go now, but we have to pass that man standing by that car,” Alfie said.
“Let’s walk fast,” Johnnie remarked.
The man stepped in their path and blocked them from moving forward and said, “where are you going?”
“To the store,” Alfie answered.
The man said, “no you’re not, you are both coming with me.”
Johnnie yelled, “run Alfie, run!”
They started to run, but the man grabbed Alfie’s arm and pulled him toward the car.
Johnnie turned in time to see Alfie kicking and screaming as the man forced him into the car.
Johnnie raced to the store and told the first person he saw what had happened.
Minutes later a police officer came and Johnnie described the man’s old junkie looking car, and remembered the large tatoo of old tools on the man’s arm.
Within thirty minutes, the police arrested the man and Alfie was found unharmed.
