Who's Who?

Flash Fiction Fun

        “Mr. Simms is absent today,” Jodi whispers. “You know the plan.”
        I line up with the rest of the students in eighth grade English. We all know what to do—change places and change names. Grinning like a goofy goose, I sit in the third row, not in my assigned seat.
        Mrs. Murphy, the gray-haired substitute, sneers at the class from behind the teacher’s desk. She holds the seating chart as she calls the roll. “Andrea.”
        “Here,” I say.
         She frowns at me. “You’re not Andrea. You’re Cynthia.”
         “I am?”
        Everyone laughs.
        Even I have forgotten my name. “Absent.”

Let’s see what the others wrote:



  1. What a fun take on the prompt! I love it!

  2. Ah mischievous students. Makes you wonder what the group is like on a good day or what they will try next.
