The Resurrection of Captain


Ma, you’re the worst housemaid…she wiped her teary eyes with the back of her soapy hand; she had discovered it from the trash after her Ma mistakenly threw it away, and washing and rinsing it for last one hour and thirty minutes to get rid of the fishy smell from it. She dipped it in the warm Dettol water and found the smell had been replaced with that of Dettol. It caught his attention after returning from school—his favorite, dependable Captain of his Storm Troopers was standing tall with a note underneath in wrong English–wased rinshed and detoled.


From Author’s Desk:

First of all thanks to Sonya for such a challenging prompt. It tested my imagination for hours and after skimming and scraping thoughts, I came up with this for the Three Lines Tales Week 53.
