The plant pot lay in pieces on the pavement.

Iain lay unconscious beside it.

He should’ve paid more attention.

Lady Wisoff-Fields claimed it was accidental.

Written as part of the Friday Fictioneers challenge hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields (more details HERE). The idea is to write a short story of 100 words based on the photo prompt (above). Last week I overstepped the word limit. As penance, as an apology and out of respect, I offer only 25 words this week to redress the balance. Thanks to Sandra Crook for the original suggestion!

  1. HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! You appeased the Purple Goddess. All depart.

    As for her modus operandi, I usually just get slapped in the face. Never a vase. Then again, there’s always a first time …

    Five out of five “calla lilies are in bloom again.” 😀

  2. Boom! Great job, Iain! I love how you retaliated and frankly, you told a whole story in one quarter of the words… Hmmmm… 😉
