Flash Friday: Child’s Play

„Come on!“

„You can do it!

I hated their cat calls. This was the first time they had allowed me to light the barbecue. I concentrated, any mistake would be dreadful.

„Go for it!“

„Nothing to it, Jenny!“

„Just do it!“

I concentrated fiercely. The barbecue grill stood seven feet away, the coals ready, piled on top of some crushed paper. Lighting it should have been child’s play.

It wasn’t.

I took a deep breath, closed my eyes and mentally went through the instructions once again. This time, I would do it. I breathed out. „Now.“

WOOOOOSH! BOOOOOOM!

My eyes flew open just in time to see a huge fireball reduce the barbecue grill to a twisted heap of charred metal.
