I just love this picture prompt from Lillie’s Five Sentence Fiction. This Joyce Grenfell type monologue popped into my head.
Now children, can anyone tell me who’s gone missing from our special book? That’s right Susie, it’s Adam and Eve and don’t cry dear, I know you didn’t take them. No Wayne, we don’t need to call the police, I’m sure they haven’t been murdered. What’s that Johnathan, you think God might have got rid of them because they stole one of his apples. A good try Johnathan, in the meantime if you could just take them out of your pocket and we’ll see if we can glue them back in, there’s a dear.
