Scaredy Cat (Friday fictioneers)

June 3, 2016


“That’s the witch’s house!”

“No it’s not, don’t be silly!” Matty shot his little sister the darkest glare he could manage.

She didn’t look scared by it at all. “Come on, let’s go closer.”

“No, Belinda, don’t”

“Scaredy cat.” She whispered and took off toward the house.

He wasn’t scared. Not really. But he wasn’t going any closer.

When nothing happened to Belinda as she peered into the broken windows he crept up to her side. “What can you see?”

“Nothing.” She grumbled. She was too short. Matty could just poke his eyes over the sill.


“Good morning children.”
