Microfiction Monday #72

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 followed by my offerings.

Fairy Marigold grimaced as she leant over to clean the prince’s shoe. The ribbons on her wand danced in an effort to escape the odour.

As Primrose put the tracking device in the shoe she noticed tentacles slithering over the front and wondered what was trying to escape.

  1. Now that's an unusual shoe :-)
    Nicely done.

  2. What fun different ones for the pic of the week, Janice! I love them! Hope your day is going well! Enjoy!


  3. Excellent, I loved 'The ribbons on her wand danced in an effort to escape the odour' hehe.

  4. Cruel shoes - as Steve Martin might say! Both were wonderfully fun to read! You did a fab job with that prompt! ☼

  5. If I understand well he should use some deo ?

  6. Oh, I love both stories... such wonderful twists at the end.

  7. Two great stories, Janice! And I love their flower names...:)


  8. Very good ones, Janice, especially the second one, it's great.

  9. Ah - I never even notices those floating ribbons...or tentacles!

  10. The 2nd one had me ROFL. Very creative and observant slant on the image.

  11. I like the one about the tracking device. Unusual slant.

  12. Haha--I like both of these...great job!
    Have a good week...cheers~

  13. These were both fantastic! I really can't decide on my favorite, although the tentacles from #2 certainly got my attention...

  14. I particularly love the one with tyhe "tracking device."

    Have a great week.

  15. Haha! FUNNY! I really ought to take part in this fun meme again but my weekends have been hectic lately.

  16. Wonderful Fairy certainly looks rather cross.
