Flash Fiction – A Mother’s Place Of Peace

November 19, 2020, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story that glorifies a toilet. Capture the marvel and status and love for a contraption we’d rather not mention. Go where the prompt leads!

A Mother’s Place Of Peace

Knock! Knock!

“Mom! What are you doing in there?”

Knock! Knock!

“I am hungry! I need a snack!”

Knock! Knock!

“What is taking so long?”

Knock! Knock!

The banging on the door was being drowned out by music on her headphones. June needed a break and like always she hid in the bathroom. For one song, she could escape as she sat on the toilet. That porcelain throne became June’s only form of solitude and privacy.

When the song ended, June wished it could have lasted longer. Taking a deep breath for courage, she opened the door and smiled.
