Do You Know Where Your Parents Are?
An alumnus of both Ficlets.com and Ficly.com. Who, for some weird reason, is starting his time here with an abundance of cannibalism-themes stories. O.o
"Excuse me, little boy." Tommy jumped at the sound. He thought he was alone in the backyard. He turned around, seeing a large, heavy set old man behind him. "I'm sorry. I didn't mean to frighten you," the old man said, smiling.
Tommy looked over his shoulder towards the house. The back door was wide open, so he felt safe. He was the fastest kid in his grade 3 class. He was sure he could get in the house if he needed to. He turned back to the man, a nervous smile on his face.
"Do you know where your parents are?" Without saying a word, Tommy pointed to the house.
"Oh, no. They aren't there." Tommy's eyes widened. "Once more, do you know where you know where they are? I'll give you a hint."
He smiled at Tommy and patted his stomach. "I do."
No prequels yet. Why not write one?
No sequels yet. Why not write one?

You could cut the "once more" part and add a line break before "Oh no." :)
Old man is pretty stealthy.. or Tommy is pretty deaf..
