Fun Land is so much better on sunny days, but the kids were having fun throwing snowballs and riding the rides that were offered.

There was a souvenir booth and Rodney and Randy were headed there. They had money and wanted to spend it.

To get over there they had to pass the rails where the little train ran. They were so busy throwing snowballs as they ran, they didn’t notice the train until it hit them. They didn’t hear the screams.

The parents hadn’t accompanied them and the teachers had to inform the parents of the accident. Both dead!


This is my first fiction piece in quite a while and I am not exactly happy with it, but with so little time it will have to do.

About Tessa

My name is Tessa Dean and I am an author and blogger. My writing styles vary and I love writing using prompts. I am also writing my first book, a Memoir entitled "Government Property - A Memoir of a Military Wife".  This is being published on the blog rather than the traditional way. I am putting up chapters as I go along. I keep my blog filled with useful content, stories, and poems. Plenty to keep you busy. I have also been interviewed by blogs and had other posts published on many different blogs. I also wrote a series of articles on Bipolar Disorder for IBPF (International Bipolar Foundation). I am in my 60’s and disabled which allows me plenty of time to write to my heart’s content. I live in southern New Jersey and have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. My oldest grandchild is a Sargent in the United States Marine Corps.

  3. A story in 100 words or less is intriguing!
