Sunday Strange microfiction challenge

Anyone have any ideas what’s going on in this painting? Apart from anything else, I’d like to know what she’s looking at. Stories please, as short as reasonably possible.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

  1. Ha ha ha. I don’t think I have a whole story, but: “If that goddamn maid doesn’t crack open my egg soon, I hope God covers her in boils.”

    Not that I believe in the war of the classes…

  2. Thank you. I am grateful. Look, I’m doing my prayer to keep me pure, not beastly like the street children. I won’t use my hands to eat. I’m a good girl. Now leave me alone, my pets are starving.

    1. I’m sure she is a ‘good’ girl, and she’ll grow up to be a ‘good’ adult, not beastly at all. Not in the way she means anyway. Thanks for the contribution 🙂
