Microfiction Monday #51

Lovely Susan from ‘Stony River’ organises and hosts this weekly meme. Thank you Susan J She provides a picture and the challenge is to create a story in 140 characters or less – including punctuation! Click here to read more marvels of microfiction – and perhaps join in. It’s fun!
Here is this week’s picture accompanied by my offering.
She knew one day her prince would come and thought he’d ride a white horse but Pegasus was unexpected.  Quoth the raven ‘Nevermore’ but why?
(140 characters)

  10. So this is her last chance at the whole white horse thing....LOL- you saw the bird as the E. A. Poe raven, albeit a green one; I saw it as a parrot.

    Very clever take on this week's MM!
