Flash Fiction

David was excited. The brothers were finally going to get their own cabin while camping! David was two years older, but their parents always made him wait for things until Andy was ready. They wanted the boys to be close. David loved Andy, he was a great brother. But having to wait for so many things got old fast. It wasn’t fair.

Tonight, he’d finally get to do “Scary Camp!” He’d thought it up years ago. It was a tape of scary noises. He’d scare the bejinkers out of Andy! An eerie howling, banging noises getting closer, and then a blood curdling scream! He’d start it as soon as Andy fell asleep!

As Andy finally drifted off, David started it up. The beginning lasted minutes, so he jolted Andy.

“Wake up! Something’s happening, listen!” he said, shaking him.

“Huh?” Andy mumbled, then fell back asleep!

“Wake up! Wake up!” David jostled Andy. But the whole tape played, and Andy slept like a log. David gave up finally, and went to sleep too.

The next morning their father woke them up. “Mom is picking us up to go for breakfast!”

“Why is Mom picking us up?” Andy asked.

“She woke me last night scared to death, said she heard weird noises! I never heard em... but she refused to stay in the cabin. Went to a motel in town,” he started back to his cabin.

Andy looked at David, then whispered, “Didn’t you try to wake me up about noises?” he asked suspiciously.

“Shhh!” David whispered back, “I’ll explain when Dad’s out of hearing!”

After that night, their parents finally got their wish, Andy and David got very close. Over the years, they did all kinds of crazy schemes together, as soon as David came up with the ideas, of course.
