Friday Fictioneers – The Glass Jar


Magdalena heard laughter coming from the library.  “Rayna, what are you laughing at?” she asked her five year old daughter as she stepped into the room.

Rayna’s eyes got big and she pointed to the glass jar by the window.  “It’s Jordan, Mama.  He makes me laugh.”

Magdalena walked over and peered into the glass.  “Who’s Jordan, sweetie?”

“He’s my friend.”

Magdalena smiled at her daughter, realizing Jordan must be imaginary, but when she looked again, she took a step back as her breath caught in her throat.

Leaning against the small glass jar was a tiny boy, peering out into the room.

Friday Fictioneers is a weekly flash fiction prompt where we are given a photo and asked to write a 100 word story – beginning, middle and end.  This one came in at 103 words.

  1. What a delightful story. It was nice that not only the child saw the boy in the jar, but also the mother saw him to. Well done sweet girl. Love you!!
