Be Prepared

Since joining the Boy Scouts, Kevin had been proud of himself. Always be prepared. This was the scouting motto. So for this trip he made sure he had clothes, food, fishing supplies, First Aid kit, blankets and toiletries. So how was it possible that he had forgotten his tent?

Welcome back to my post for Flash in the Pan. The flash word is tent and the maximum word count is 50. I finished at 49. To see what others are writing, or to view the flash rules, visit Red at the M3 blog. These short stories, called flashes, are due to be released in a book called “Boys and their toys.” It is scheduled for production May 1,2014. Thanks for viewing and good luck in your writing.



  1. Well you know, tents do add to the weight of the backpack so maybe it was simply subconscious.

    Great one.
