Once there was a house over a bridge. It was empty. No one lived there. One day, the army came and deployed cannons and they made their base there. They even put a lifting bridge over the river for security.
A week later, another army came. A horrible war took place. Lots of men died but the army with the base won.
They put the wood for more protection.
They put cannons on the roof.
They put sharks in the river.
They had won the war.
Moral: To ace, make a base.
Beaming with pride and hugely impressed with the story he had written, the 8-year-old barged out of the house into the backyard calling out loudly, “Hey Mom, I want you to read the most epic story I have ever written!”
Here is a quick fiction (if there is a word like it) in response to the prompt ‘Mom’ given by The Frangipani Creative. If the prompt is Mom, then it is harder to go the fictional route because there are numerous real-life stories. The war story here is actually a work of fiction by Dhruv while the creation of the backyard is a figment of my imagination.
