A Place For Everything & Everything In It’s Place…Friday Fictioneers.

Jackson was seething with rage, and vowing revenge. Busted with a bottle of Bacardi at school, the Principal had poured it straight down the sink, slapped him with a three day suspension, and hauled his parents into the office. That was it. He was immediately despatched to Uncle Bill’s piggery to teach him a good, hard lesson. “Suspension was a punishment, not a holiday”. The stench of pig still permeated his skin, as he emptied the contents of the takeaway container into her desk. A place for everything and everything in its place, it was right at home.


100 words. This has been another contribution to the Friday Fictioneers hosted by Rochelle Wishoff-Fields at https://rochellewisoff.com/. Every week, we write 50 words to a photo prompt. This weeks PHOTO PROMPT @ Jan Wayne Fields.

By the way, if you’re interested in old family photographs, you might like to check out my previous past. After my Great Aunt passed away, I’ve been putting some photos together and, of course, came up with some complcations.

Best wishes,

    You’re two steps ahead of me, Iain. I hadn’t thought of either of those consequences. My story stopped there. Oh yes! He’s got to get caught again. That’s his lot. He’s not the one who gets away with it. I can see the principal in a pre-covid world silently descending and seizing his hand while it’s still in the drawer. His only chance is that the spider bites.

    I think you’re right, Neil. After responding to Iain’s comment, I now have him caught in the act, and the Principal has grasped him by the arm. The only question is how will she respond to the spider, and what type of spider is it? Being a principal, I doubt she’s scared of much and there isn’t much she hasn’t seen before so he could be more in danger of scaring himself instead.

    YIKES … I see severe punishment in his future.
    Your title reminded me of my 2nd-grade teacher from my Catholic school days.
    It was always being said. ~~~ : – )
    Happy New Year 2021
    Be Safe 😷 … Isadora 😎

    Malicious destruction of personal property. Adjudication: clean Principal’s desk meticulously to meet her satisfaction, restitution — to be paid only out of money he earned — and 4 weekend work Saturdays at the landfill. Revenge is the smart thing to do as an idea, but logistically it’s a bad idea, especially if he would have had a P.O. like me 😉
