First Scoop of Vanilla – Micro Fiction

Fiction, Writing May 30, 2018

I decided to share some of my “writing rejects” with readers of my blog, for possible entertainment and my own catharsis. So, here is a recent non-winning entry 🙂 (on the theme of summer.)

First Scoop of Vanilla

“Mummy, can we get an ice-cream today?” she asked, with hopeful eyes. I looked at the window like a temperature gauge. Expecting the sea to be dashing its usual frothy rage against the rocks, I was surprised. It was a still pool with summer casting its first light on the seascape. My lips changed their typical tune from “it’s too cold today.”

We sat on a wall, it’s paint chipped from months of wild weather. Her little face looked up at mine; rainbow hundreds and thousands glued to her chin with vanilla cream. She looked engrossed, enjoying every lick like the first taste of summer sun’s kiss.

Hi I'm Keelan :) I’m a single mum of two. I like finding inventive ways to have fun with my kids, budget cooking, style and decorating and trying to squeeze in time for myself and writing :) I sometimes write for Vintage Life magazine and love 60’s music and vintage style.
