This is my entry into this week’s Friday fictioneers challenge.
The picture that we were given this week is:

My 100 word story is:
It was the children’s playtime, so a certain amount of screaming and noise was a normal thing. Nothing was really unusual, until I heard a massive crash that was followed by complete silence.
I instinctively knew that something was going to be lying broken, and the only thought running through my mind was it was going to be one of the children. My heart stood still, and then I launched into action and ran into the room.
Guiltily, the children moved so that I could see the remains of what had once been a proud, yellow chicken.
I was heartbroken.
