Thanks to @PurpleQueenNL over on twitter for the heads up about this Lillie McFerrin’s site http://lilliemcferrin.com and the five sentence fiction challenges there.
The current word nudge is ‘Forgotten’ and here’s my take on that:
‘I can’t remember the last time I saw them, okay, please stop asking me the same damn question, I just want someone to tell me where my kids are.’
Shannon slammed her hand against the side of her head, tears filled her eyes.
The two community support officers stayed their ground, knowing that if they approached she could easily run away across the park and get away.
They already knew that where her children were wasn’t something that the woman had forgotten.
‘It’s okay, love, we’ll try and find someone to help you remember, but first we really need you to put that knife down, okay?’
