Flash Fiction: Get in the Van

In honor of my morning shopping trip to Walmart:


“I’m not going to tell you again. Now get in the van.”

“No.”

“Christopher Michael Garver, you get in this van right now.”

“No.”

“Do you want me to call your father?”

“No.”

“Then get in the van, now.”

“No.”

“That’s it, I'm calling your dad.”

“No.”

“I’ll spank you right here, young man, in front of everyone. Is that what you want?”

“No.”

“You’re making a scene. Just get in the van.”

“No.”

“Why are you acting like this? Just get in and we’ll go home and talk about it.”

“No.”

“Please get in van, Christopher.”

“No.”

“Come on, Chrissy, help Mommy out here.”

“No.”

“Fine, if we go back in and get you the game system, will you get in the van?”

“Yes.”
