This is my story for Friday Fictioneers this week. This is a weekly challenge to write a story in 100 words with a beginning, middle, and end. It’s supposed to follow the picture prompt for the week. The host for the challenge is the talented and gracious Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. This week the prompt is a photo supplied by Sandra Crook. Thanks, Sandra. It has been suggested that Blue could have given Peep even better advice for her night herding, so I have changed my story a bit to fit in with that.

BO PEEP’S PROBLEM by P.S. Joshi
Bo Peep was crying and wringing her hands. She’d lost her flock of sheep.
She’d searched high and low, back and forth.
What could she do? Her whole family depended on her. She’d never been in such trouble.
Until evening everything had been fine. Then they disappeared. She thought she heard them so where could they be?
Little Boy Blue came along and offered to help. She explained her problem.
He looked around and came back to her.
“Peep,” he said. “Aren’t those your sheep over there?”
“Where?” she asked.
He shook his head. “You need night vision goggles, Peep.”
