This is for Sonya’s Three Line Tales photo prompt. Second drone this week!

They never let him do what he wanted, never listened when he spoke, decided everything for him, even what brand of trainers he wore.

Anyone watching would have said, Finally little Joey got something he asked for, lucky kid; maybe now he’ll stop whining about how everyone ignores him.

Well, they’d be wrong, and when the drone landed on the roof, his parents and his godawful brother would wish they’d paid a bit more attention to little Joey.

    1. There was a terribly tragic case of that here a couple of weeks ago. An entire family disappeared, blood found all over the house, clothing dumped all over the département, and the papers were giving out that it was the son who did it because he was a quiet, lonely teenager. They went to town psyching out the children and what could have pushed the brother to do it. Turned out it was a loony uncle. Suspicion often falls on this type of boy. For once, it wasn’t justified.

      1. That’s tragic – a whole family wiped out. The poor left behind – you just can’t imagine what he’s feeling. There are some very dangerous people out there

      2. Apparently the uncle thought his brother in law had a secret hoard of gold coins that he had disappeared when the inheritance of his (and the uncle’s wife’s) parents was sorted out. His wife insisted that there were no gold coins but he wouldn’t believe her. Complete nutcase.
