AnElephantCant always be very creative
He can’t write a weekly murder mystery
But he can find no one bonnier
Than his lovely friend Anja
To snuff out so the rest is just history
This is a weekly invitation to write a short piece of fiction (c. 150 words) based on a photo prompt (below) provided by Alastair.
Just click on the link to sip from a cup of liquid delights which pour from the prosaic pens of pernicious people.
But please first read AnElephant’s little splash of silliness.
You really are the most amazing individual I have ever met!
Thank you, dear Anja, I think you are only saying that because it is true.
Of course! I am a teacher, I don’t tell lies!
I see, I am sure that is a comfort to the parents.
But they do worry about my many deaths at your fictional hands, in case I really do die!
I can understand that. Words are a powerful weapon.
Are you going to eliminate me again this week? What new and foul end do you have planned?
I don’t want to spoil the surprise.
In the past few weeks I have drowned, jumped from a high bridge, been chopped up by evil Al ….
Nothing so mundane this week.
Oh, is that a harpoon gun?
You don’t miss much, do you?
Before you fire, please tell me this.
Of course, anything for a lady.
How do you make the water come up out of the glass like that?
I have a trunk.
