Writing Prompt – Not Alone

29 Jun

Hello!  Today’s prompt is actually an idea I’ve had for a short story recently.  I’m not going to flesh it out, just give you guys the bare skeleton.  Here she goes:

A woman and her husband are in a restaurant trying to have a romantic dinner when the woman receives a call from home.  It is their daughter.  The little girl is distraught and rambling incoherently in hushed tones.  She can’t get the babysitter to the phone.  What’s going on at home and what do the parents do?  ((Hint: no, this will not be a robbery or kidnapping story.  Those are predictable and predictable is cliche. . . which is cheating.))

This is the prompt for today.  Until next week!
