They couldn’t keep us out. Bobby found it. The gap. Right back there in the corner. Near the woods. One by one we scrambled under, working our way through. Jenny yelped as the wire claimed some hair. Blood trickled onto her muddy cheeks.

“Nice make up,” Sy smirked.

“Shhh.” Bobby warned them. He waved us to follow him. Creeping slowly across the field, trying to avoid detection.

We could see them in the distance. Colorful lights. Crowds. Best of all we could hear. Nearly there.

“Told you. Needles in haystacks, that’s us. Go Glastonbury!”

  1. Wonderful story–left me with visions of children sneaking into ballgames/circus, etc. Loved the images of the children scrambling under the fence–nice touch to give a boo-boo to one. 🙂

    Oh yes, the temptation to sneak in the back way! Nice work. Mine’s at http://wp.me/p1WuR1-Ss.

  3. Into where are these little ones sneaking?

    Here’s mine:

    • Glastonbury is a big music festival here in UK rather like the old Woodstock in the States. It is held in farm fields and inevitably it rains! thanks for your comments.

  4. Hey! I live up the road from there – I was hoping you would be going to the festival! Really well written, very real and very gritty – and then the treasure at the end of the trail.
    Good show,

  5. Nice. The little glimpse of levity in Sy’s remark should have tipped us off that it wasn’t as serious as first thoughts would have us believe…

    Hi … Your story reminds me of when as kids we used to crawl under the back fence to sneak into our annual Three County Fair. Also, it reminds me of Woodstock, our famous music festival. Read about it in my story for this week. Find it here.

  8. Really nice story, very well written. I particularly liked your characterisation. You wouldn’t catch me sneaking into a weekend full of mud and portaloos (they reek after just one two hour gig!).

  9. Loved it, very neat twist on the prompt. Told a succinct story effectively, really good job here. I hope they have a great time there!
