Friday 10/8/10 - "HER HERO" - FFF55




FLASH FICTION FRIDAY 55



"HER HERO"


Daddy was her hero.
She knew she would never be able to fill his shoes.

Heck she couldn't pick them up.

If she tried to wear them they would be like her little jeans,

but without the top to cover her bottom.


What to do?

She was content to adoringly follow him everywhere he went.

Flash Fiction Friday is hosted by G-Man.

I think a little bottom peeking out of big boots would be very cute! :)

Nice one. Hard to fill father's shoes.

TALON said...

Oh my! This was just the sweetest! It brought back a clear memory of one my sons who was probably 18 months old at the time (now 26), standing in his father's shoes--and the look on his face! Priceless! Beautiful 55!
