Hide and Seek

11,019 views

My son and I often play games, he’s five years old so our games can range from pirate battles in the middle of the ocean to simple board games like snakes and ladders.

Today we decided to play hide and seek.

I counted to fifty while he went to hide in one of the three hiding places that he always picks.

‘Ready or not, here I come’ I called, as I slowly made my way to the sofa. I looked down and there he was two little feet sticking out from behind the sofa, accompanied by muffled laughter.

Oh, I can’t find you anywhere!’ I explaimed, knowing that the idea that he’d hiden well would cause him to jump out of his hiding place in excitement.
‘Right’ I said ‘time for bed’

As I tucked my son into bed and kissed him good night, a small figure appeared at the bedroom door.
‘Mummy,’ It whispered ‘you didn’t come to find me.’

    So basically what this story is saying is that she tucked in the wrong child?

    lacking important transitional elements, and crucial details pertaining to the time and why they were suddenly from play mode to bed mode but it’s got a solid foundation in the main idea:
    -play hide and seek with kid
    -find kid
    -tuck kid in later
    -kid comes back like what the fuck mom you didn’t find me as the parent tucks in some kind of interdimensional shapeshifting kidbeast

    could have been fleshed out a little more, with a more tangible sense of timing. Great premise though, keep it up!
