This is for Lillie McFerrin’s Five Sentence Fiction.
The word this week is: Flight.
“Your hair is such a bird’s nest,” said her mother.
She ran a comb severely through Ellie’s ringlets, neatly dividing the curls from one side to the other.
Ellie wished she wouldn’t say such things. When her mother tugged too hard, the birds always took flight.
The birds did make such a mess.

The frustration of curly hair, simply and truthfully put! Lovely.
So very sweet. You capture the young mind so well. 🙂
I adored this! It so reminded me of many strange videos I have watched and enjoyed over the years. Even “The Addams Family” came to mind.
I adore the image and the artist who does those images. The story is perfect for it!
I love this! Sweet & simple.
Adorable! I love it!
The image captured my mind, you filled it with fancy. As always, VERY well done!

Anyway I love the simplicity of the piece; the gorgeous cuteness of the character. The image is amazaing too! xx
Ha Mrs Loy – Love that image and your wonderful imagination..xx
A whimsical idea of an age old problem. Snarls and knot tugging was a daily ritual for me as a child. Love the way your blog site looks.
How completely charming and delightful! I’m leaving with a smile.
I love the last line! So cute and such a great use of the picture as a prompt. 🙂
