Friday Fictioneers: The Briefcase
There’s his briefcase. Seems he’s always looking for that thing. It holds all his most valuable papers, such as his colored drawings of the strange creatures and characters he’s created. He talks about them as if they’re real. In his mind they are.
When he’s not reading comic books or playing online games, he’s drawing.
It used to frustrate me until I realized he’ll always be a kid at heart. It was best to stop fighting him and appreciate his talents.
I’m proud of my husband for he’s one the best comic book artists in the industry.

More of us should be kids at heart, it would make the world a happier place!
An artist’s work is never done. I am happy he gets recognition from his community and support from his partner. Good story 🙂
Thank you. I like happy endings.
You are welcome.
There is something to be said for the kids at heart… as long as they are not childish 😉
Agree. And are not drunk childish. Ha.
I agree with other commenters – being a kid at heart is great as long as he can “adult” when he needs to 🙂
Very true. ;0)
It’s good to be a kid at heart, unless of course you’re the president of a powerful country. Then maybe it’s not so desirable
I have no idea what you are talking about.
I’d say he’s answered his calling. Nicely done.
Thank you, Rochelle. ;0)
Never growing up proved to be profitable it seems! Good for him!
Here’s my contribution!
That is a sign of great maturity and understanding. Let each one help other grow.
It’s very adult of her to learn to appreciate the kid-at-heart in him. And to see how it enriches their lives. I just hope he does the same for her.
This is my fantasy, so yes he does. ;0)
Lovely story 🙂
Thank you. ;0)
