Flying Through The Eye…Friday Fictioneers.

As a five year old, Molly’s perspective of their European vacation was very different to her Mum and Dad’s.

While they were engrossed in the minutae of the architectural details, Molly’s gaze wandered upwards, drawn towards the huge eye peering down through the roof. The eye of a friendly giant.

“Molly! Molly!” he beckoned.

Sensing a miraculous adventure, Molly let go of her mother’s hand and started rising higher and higher. “OMG! Mummy! Daddy! I’m flying”

Then, she looked down.There was only blue sky, clouds and teeny weeny rooftops as small as Monopoly houses and the moon lay up ahead.

    Reminds me of many holidays when I was younger that I look back on now and realise how little I appreciated them. If only I had a huge giant beckoning me πŸ™‚

    Iain, perhaps, you missed him and that could well have been a good thing.
    That said, I would’ve like to meet Roald Dahl.
    Best wishes,

    Thanks, Gary. I still think and see like a child and I guess that’s why my husband wasn’t completely shocked when he saw me watching Peppa Pig on my computer the other day. However, I had the last laugh when he couldn’t understand what Peppa Pig was saying. I was brushing up my German.

    I hope her giant might be Roald Dahl. I’m also a bit concerned about her parents might feel about her going missing. Or, perhaps they won’t notice.

    Glad someone thought about her parents. I have just finished reading Slade House by David Mitchell and it was very other worldly and that helped inspire this one.

    I’m intrigued by what people see in these photos, Trent. They’re a real psych test like the Rorschach Inkblot test.
    This story was partially inspired by a book I read this week…David Mitchels’s: Slade House. It had this very complex psychic thing going on throughout, which is totally beyond my capabilities to explain. My take goes along the lines that not everything requires an explanation or even has one.

    You’ve described one of my childhood dreams exactly! I used to find them pretty scary, but I always landed safe and sound. I hope Molly also lands safely back with her parents.

    Yes, Brenda. As much as I could get into those whimsical shoes of the young child, I had to see this from the parent’s point of view these days as well and Madeleine McCann’s poor parents crossed my mind.
    Best wishes,

    I think she’ll come down exactly where she was. I like the whole time-lapse thing with this one where she goes on this massive adventure inbetween the seconds of time and comes back as though nothing happened and spends the rest of her life trying to work out if it was real or just a dream.
