FFF #23 – Pure Imagination

I can’t believe I’ve been FFF-ing so long! We’ve hit 23 weeks now since Matt at The Book Blogger stsrted this challenge, where we get a prompt song to write a 100 word flash fiction piece.
This week it is a cover of the track Pure Imagination, by Fiona Apple…
Made famous in the original Willy Wonka film, it’s a true favourite of mine!

Check out the prompt here.

Totally broken, I came out of the school.

I couldn’t believe she had lied. All that detail, all those stories, those tears…

I was devastated that my child was going through so much, almost torture, at school and that no one was listening to, or helping her.

In I went, all guns blazing, and really took the Head Teacher to task. My child was being bullied, verbally, physically, and I hadn’t been informed of anything… homework destroyed, lunches stolen…

Only to be told it had been a pure work of her twisted imagination.

It was her who was the bully.

But I Smile Anyway...

    That was beautifully done, such a dark tone matches the song well and I love the twist!
    Best, Matt
