‘When did you last see your baby?’

‘I went into the kitchen to collect her food. When I came back, she and the chair were gone.’

‘You think someone stole the chair and kidnapped your child?’

‘I don’t know!’

‘Alright, Ma’am, keep calm.’


‘Dispatch, this is Officer 423. We’ve located the baby chair, abandoned on 8th and Greenacre. No sign of the kid.’

‘Copy that.’


She landed on the rooftop, and took small, uncertain toddler steps. She looked down on the bustling metropolis. She was one of them, but her infant mind understood: she was also something more.

  1. Awesome story Iain. I quite like your explanation for why the high hair was abandoned and ives a more positive slant to what happened in mine. I really enjoyed this.
    Best wishes,

  2. Neil made me chuckle when he used the word: nappies.
    This is quite an imaginative tale,Iain. Babies with superpowers. But, what about mom?
    She’s hysterical. Perhaps, a little message to her. LOL I like where you took the prompt.
    Have a great day … Be Safe

  3. Great story. I’d be interested to see where it would go. Reminds me a bit of a scene from my favourite Superman comic run (2011 Action Comics by Grant Morrison) where a baby on Krypton sits on a ledge because even the babies on Krypton are too smart to jump or fall off…
