** V is for VSS (very short fiction) **

PROMPT: Where did the 15 high school students go when the bus disappeared?
A bus load of 15 students and a driver disappeared. The hole swallowed them. The tunnel finally gave up its prisoners, standing confident.
PROMPT: Describe an unphotographable moment.

The heist had failed. The intelligence had been wrong. She was 7 years old caught with her mum's empty purse.
