Flash 12: The New Home

The New Home
Joan Hobernicht

“I think it’s time we started a family,” Harold informed Clara.

“Yes, but I don’t want to raise little ones here where it gets terribly hot in the summer,” Clara said.

The couple abandoned their home and flew to a little town in the mid-west. They found a perfect place to live. Harold searched the country-side for items they needed. While Clara bustled about making things ready for little ones. Then they sat and waited.

Five baby birds pecked their way into their home. Mr. and Mrs. Finch were very proud.

I liked the twist at the end. It made me smile.
