Life fluttering by.

Written for the Jan 7 99-word Flash Fiction challenge with the prompt words of ‘butterfly’ and ‘stone’.

When you were small, you used to call butterflies ‘flutterbys’ and you’d chase them through my veg patch and I’d pretend to be angry but you’d just laugh and keep running. When you got older, you’d stone the crows in my corn patch because you were going through your ‘everything has to be yellow’ phase and you made me plant a hundred sunflowers and buy a golden retriever. When you visited with your daughter and she chased the flutterbys through the veg patch, the wind blew dust in my eyes and I had to rub them for a while.
