Purple Stain - 60 Word Fiction

Rachel dropped blackcurrant juice on the rug. Aunt Celia’s smile didn’t falter, as hands smoothed down apron, became grin as stain spread. Eric stomped on a chocolate bar and crushed it into the floorboards.

“Children will be children,” Aunt Celia whistled.

In the kitchen, fingers hovered over a carving knife as something smashed. Smile twitched as she popped a valium.
