Every week, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields (thank you, Rochelle!) hosts a flash fiction challenge, to write a complete story, based on a photoprompt, with a beginning, middle and end, in 100 words or less. Post it on your blog, and include the Photoprompt and Inlinkz on your page. Link your story URL. Then the fun starts as you read other peoples’ stories and comment on them!

A big decision
“So, which one would you like?”
James looked at the sunhats and wondered whether he dared say.
“They’re all baseball caps, mum. I don’t like baseball.”
“You’ve got to have a sunhat, James. Just choose one.”
Blushing, James pointed to the pink one. His older brother, Edward, sniggered.
“Oh, I don’t think that’s suitable. What about this one? It says ‘Aloha’. And it’s bright – you like colourful clothes.”
“The pink one’s only 35 talas; I’ve got enough spending money. Can I have it if I buy it myself?”
“Let the boy have it,” said his dad, quietly.
