My first fresh Friday Flash fiction for a while.
My soul seriously sings when I write something new… but no promises… I did write this one quickly.
‘Itchy, itchy, itchy!’ Lila scratched, nearly drawing blood.
‘Itchy?’ Noelene asked.
‘Yes!’ Lila screamed.
‘I know it’s annoying, but if you’ll just wait a few minutes longer, we should have the problem solved.’
‘I. T. C. H. Y. !!!’
Noelene walked closer, quieting her voice. ‘It’s obvious you really can’t put up with it any longer. We are aware of it, and if you can just take a seat, we’ll have it all sorted in a few minutes.’
‘Can someone stop it? Please?’ she sat, slapping every inch of her body, seeking the area for a solution.
‘How are you going John?’ Noelene asked.
‘Nearly done, last one almost ready,’ he replied.
‘What is taking so long?’ Lila clawed her fingernails through her hair. John walked away, and was now out of her vision. ‘Where’s he gone?’
‘Lila, relax. He’ll be back in a minute.’
‘Oh! Itchy, itchy, itchy!’
Noelene paced the floor while Lila continued to scratch.
John returned within minutes. ‘Some lotion for your bites, and the citronella candles and mosquito coils should keep those nasty biting creatures away while we eat dinner.’
