55 on Friday #WriteTribe

“Open the door”, hollered a six-year old Tina, locked up in the bathroom for the umpteenth time, as a punishment for breaking the new tea-set. She was afraid of the dark.

This is my first attempt ever at 55 words fiction, and it was quite a challenge! Linking this to Day 6 of WriteTribe Festival of Words.
