The faded yellow boat felt sad. Why didn’t the children want to go in him? They always chose the red boats and left him on the side of the pool. He knew he was special but why didn’t they?
One day a family came. Two of the children clamoured to ride in the red boat. Perspemon wanted to go in the yellow.
“Alright. You can go in the yellow by yourself.”
“Hold on tight” the yellow boat willed. “We’re off. Your family will think you are still here”
Perspemon blinked. He was in a yellow boat on the river
This is my contribution to Charli’s prompt in the children’s section. The prompt is:
October 8, 2014 prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) include a yellow boat on a river. Be creative with the phrase. It can be about a yellow boat or it could be the name of a band or brand of toothpaste. It can be included in the setting or be the adventure.
As a bonus challenge, anyone willing to write a story for three year-olds will be included in a separate children’s compilation. It’s an option, and not the main prompt. I owe my nephew a story.
