Burst Bubble - 60 Word Fiction

BURST BUBBLE

With frown painted in place of smile, and tear smearing make-up, Bubble sways along the canal bank with balloons trailing between his legs like a tail. Stone skims the water, followed by another which hits and bursts balloon. The might of the pop deafens, drowns out the assailant's mocking.

Jack D's hot fire bolsters spirit; inspires Bubble to give the kid a two finger salute.
