Yay! It’s time again for Friday Fictioneers, the best time of the week (and currently the only time I seem to be able to get anything written on here…). Thank you, as always, to Rochelle for providing the prompt. Enjoy the story!
Battery Fully Charged
It was on the news for days.
“Reports suggest this could be the biggest storm of the season….”
“Officials urge the public not to panic and prepare for the storm the best they can…”
Mom bought batteries for all the flashlights, filled every available water bottle in the house and filled all the sinks with warm soapy water.
It only took 28 minutes for the power to go out. Outside the storm raged. Thunder crashed, the dogs whined, and my little brother cried because he was afraid of the dark. But I kicked back with my iPad, battery fully charged.
