Friday Fictioneers. What if I cracked?

Written for the Friday Fictioneers prompt. Write a 100 word story based on the photo below.


Tommy carefully placed his feet between the lines as his mom rushed him along.

“Just walk normal and let’s go, I’m running late already.” She said in a huff.

“Mom, it’s important to miss the cracks.” He pleaded.

Tommy glanced at her just long enough to lose his place and his foot touched a seam. Frustrated he missed the next step and tripped, falling to the pavement. With his hand still clenched to mom’s he brought her down too. He looked up expecting her to be furious but she just set there smiling. She looked back at him and they both started laughing uncontrollably.
