The Imaginary Friend

‘Who on earth did this?’
There was silence – the sort of silence you could have cut with a knife.
Emma looked at the room with a shocked expression. Her husband feigned surprise and his mouth opened then closed again without a single word escaping.  Emma looked at the baby. He was only six months so she assumed that he was in the clear. That only left Samuel.  She turned her stare on him and he returned it with an air of confidence.
‘It was Gonks. He’s a naughty boy. I told him not to do it but he didn’t listen. It wasn’t my fault.’

  1. This really made me giggle. I saw your dedication on Twitter, so I'm assuming this is a true story?I love the innocent assumption that he's going to be believed!

  2. Ha, such a nice image, I can just see Samuel's expression as he puts it off on his imaginary friend.

  3. A great story.Where would we be without an imaginary friend to blame?

  4. I think Gonks has been a bad influence on Samuel..

  5. Nicely written. Really sweet. (But a tad worrying…?)

  6. ha ha – great job – I love the imaginary friend angle – my son like to blame things on his stuffed dog – boy it's hard to keep a straight face sometimes 😀

  7. All I can say is, thank goodness my kids didn't have imaginary friends if that's what happens! But, hello – was husband present while all this was going on?!

  8. Super. Sometimes we all need someone to blame…
