The Great Cookie Heist

I wrote this story in answer to the following prompt:
Friday Fictioneers – Write a 100-word piece based on the Photo Prompt image above by © Jennifer Pendergast

The Great Cookie Heist

The robbery was all planned around baby Bailey in his red romper suit.

We smashed his Lego starship.

Instant explosive tantrum!

Mum would deal with him for half-hour.

Alisha who’s four intercepted grandpa and his fluffy white beard.

Dave kicked the cat’s litter tray over spreading that stinky crap everywhere to occupy dad.

Then I crept from the cupboard beneath the stairs. Entering the kitchen, I used the yellow stool to reach the work surface. My crane arm opened the cupboard and I stole the chocolate chip cookies.

Alisha, Dave, and I ate the evidence really, really fast!

The End

Thanks for reading my friends.

There’s more in the Poetry CornerPoetry Nook, and the Short Story Collection

  1. Brilliant, Mason! And a wonderful plan needs all the participants to be on the same page. I think, once the parents and grandparent fiinish cleaning up the messes, they should be glad to see that their kids get along 😉 Even if for nefarious reasons…

  2. I see a movie in their future — a family of pint-sized master criminals, let out of prision to do a job for “greater good” And I’m putting my cookies on a higher shelf under lock and key.

      1. Writing does do that. I has been entirely horrible for me. I loved spending days on end writing with my sleuth. but now with 20 mysteries written I feel all writing has done is prove how worthless and useless I am.
