I went over the word count, but I think it was worth it.

4) Prompt: a hostage situation

“Give him back,” Katie yelled, beating and kicking at the door. “You are gonna be in so much trouble!”

“Will not,” Jake said, making double sure he had locked the door when he ran in. He glanced around the room, wishing his windows were the kind that opened.

“Give him back!” Kate said again.

“What will you do for him?”

“Why should I do anything, he’s mine!”

“Not anymore,” Jake taunted through the door. “He’s mine now, and you can’t do anything about it.” He giggled to himself as Katie’s yells and thumping at the door increased. Oh, he knew he was in trouble. His mistake was running into his room and not out the front door, but it was too late for that.

“Jake! Open the door!” The door rattled as she shook the door by the handle. She sounded near tears. Excellent! The only thing now he had to worry about if she went for the big guns and called- “MOM!”

Oh crap.

“Jake! What are you doing to your sister?”

“Nothing!” Buy some time, buy some time, buy some ti-

“He stole Spike when I got a snack, and I need him so Twilight Sparkle can write a letter to Princess Celestia, and now he locked his door and won’t give him back!”

What did she need the little toy for anyway, it was a dragon, girls didn’t play with dragons. He heard the heavy steps of his mother, then her voice right behind the door. “Jake. Give your sister back her toy and open this door right this instant, or so help me you’ll be sleeping on your stomach for a week!”


“Right now!”

“You won’t get the paddle?”

“Not unless you don't open this door right now.” Jake sighed, his fun over, and opened the door. His eyes widened as soon as it revealed his mother and what she held, and she grabbed him before he could try to shut it again.

“You said you weren’t gonna get the paddle!”

“And you promised you wouldn’t fight with your sister. Guess which lie is gonna hurt more?”
