Janet Reid's Flash Fiction Contest - 7/30/2015

Prompt words:
tattoo
waffle
house
Indiana
book

Entry:
There's no place I love more than Grandma's house. Every room's tattooed with my childhood. Crayon on the wall where us kids drew our own picture books. Grandma didn't want to paint over original art. Ice cream stains from fumbled waffle cones. Grandma didn't like the carpet color anyway. Dents in doors from recreating Indiana Jones's boulder scene. Grandma didn't care about door dents, just kid dents.

I asked her to leave the house to me, but Grandma didn't change her will.

I light a match.
Grandma didn't understand. No one else can have her house. Just me. Only me.
