The Escape Plan – Flash Fiction
The following story was written for a challenge
over at Carrot Ranch.
February 20, 2020, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story about a library cat named Rainbow who escapes.
Rainbow, held captive, couldn’t take this anymore; she had to get out of this library. She’d miss the children who came in that paid attention to her but not the head librarian, who thought she was just a mouser.
Back when people used libraries to borrow books it was more interesting. Nowadays it’s children that come to take art classes.
She had a plan. She’d jump into one of the children’s bags and escape. That afternoon she saw the perfect opportunity and jumped on it only to find out she’d picked the wrong bag … the librarian’s kid’s bag.
