A VBS Safari (Flash Fiction)

This story comes from the #pleasantwordschallenge on Instagram! The prompt was to start a story with “The situation has gone from bad to worse.” In full honesty, I’ve never been to VBS before so this story is entirely fictional and isn’t based on a real occurrence – although I do think this sounds pretty plausibleContinue reading “A VBS Safari (Flash Fiction)”
