Charlottetown, Canada - A-Z Flash Fiction World Tour

As a little shout-out to the many wonderful Canadians I know, today I'm writing about Charlottetown on Prince Edward Island. To read the rest of the A-Z World Tour 2013, go here.

Charlottetown

The little boat had barely stopped running when Daniel swung his legs over the side and sprinted away. His dad shook his head and smiled.
"I hope it isn't this year," he said to his wife. "I really do."
Daniel was thinking the same thing as he ran, the soles of his sneakers slapping against the wooden slats of the pontoon. Not this year, not this year, not this year.
The door of the restaurant swung open and he stood there, surveying the room with such panic that he saw nothing, until he saw her.
She smiled and put her tray down, and he could see in her eyes that it wasn't this year. She was still his, for one more summer.

  8. lovely story told so succinctly yet thouroughly. Read your profile. What is pink tea?

    1. Pink tea is herbal tea, usually made with red berries. I usually drink raspberry tea, just the normal kind in bags from the supermarket. When I started this blog, I'd just given up black tea so I named the blog after my new favourite drink!

      Thanks for visiting and for your lovely comment!
