K is for Kangaroo #AtoZChallenge

This year, for the A to Z Blogging Challenge, I'm writing Micro Fiction (or Flash Fiction) that is 100 words or less around a set list of words provided by my BFF (Kemari Howell). Today's letter is "K", so today K is for Kangaroo.  

K is for Kangaroo

“This better be good, Kane” I grumbled into my phone—half asleep.

“Dude, you’re never going to believe where I am. Guess.”

“My brain isn’t working yet. Why are you whispering?”

“I’m hiding… in a bathroom… at the zoo.”

“That’s awesome.  I’m going back to…”

“Don’t hang up! There’s a kangaroo in here.”


“A kangaroo! I think he’s washing his hands.” He giggled.

“Whatever.” I hung up on him. A minute later, my phone beeped. I pulled up the text—a photo—a freaking kangaroo. I buried my head under a pillow and tossed the phone across the room.


Feel free to leave your short pieces of fiction (<100 words) in the comments below. The word for today is Kangaroo.
