Flash Fiction #141

Eat Your Heart Out

PHOTO PROMPT © Kelvin M. Knight


“It’s no fair, Mom! How come Robbie gets to go on the school art museum trip, and I don’t??  He’s just a year older”

“Howie, I told you before. You have to improve your grades, but despite being yelled at several times, you’re too busy playing street-hockey with your ‘posse’ to do your homework.  You’ve slipped from B-, to C.  You’ll have to stay home and study.”

Rob couldn’t resist taunting his younger brother. “Art is for people with maturity.  You haven’t been showing much lately, so you have to stay home while I go, and eat your heart out.”


Go to Rochelle’s Addicted to Purple site and use her Wednesday photo as a prompt to write a complete 100 word story.

    Ah brothers… sounds like a conversation in my house!


  2. Ha, “Eat your heart out.” Funny.

    Poor Howie. I don’t think this is the way to encourage him to improve his grades. A great picture of sibling one-up-man-ship.

    Rob needs a clout up alongside the head 🙂


  5. He only had one rival brother, I had two! Thanks for the trip back in time!

    Reminds me of home MANY years ago. Well done!


  8. Dear Archon,

    Big brother’s a real prince. You definitely captured sibling rivalry. Eat your heart out. My brother and I used to exchange that one frequently.
