Prompt for January 7, 2016

Complete the short story/flash fiction, that has the following opening:

“But, Mom, why do I have to go as well?”

Zoe Richards took another deep breath as she tried to calm down before replying to her daughter. Even though Sylvia was almost eighteen, her birthday was just a couple of days away, she sometimes behaved like her younger brother Kyle, whiney and petulant. Her father, her ex-husband Kent, was trying to arrange a vacation where he could see his kids. His job had taken him to the east coast and he rarely got to see Zoe and Kyle. He was making an effort and Zoe needed to make one as well. She was about to tell Zoe what she thought when she was grabbed by the arm and pulled to the ground by her daughter.

“Mom, he’s got a gun!”
