Happy Friday, Readers! Welcome to the ever-exciting, Friday Fictioneers, led by the wonderful Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. This week’s photo is provided by Kent Bonham. As promised, I’ve gone with a happier tone this week and brought back some familiar characters. Enjoy!
Those Birds Are Not For Eating
“Grumpkin is eating my birds,” Sonia announced as she marched into Hal’s room without knocking. Hal jumped then groaned as ink spread over the field notes he had been copying. Two hours of work. Wasted. He glanced at the little troll sitting peacefully in the corner.
“Where’s your proof?”
“He’s a troll. I don’t need proof,” Sonia snapped.
“Yes you do. Grumpkin knows better.”
“I don’t think so”, Sonia started, but suddenly Grumpkin interrupted.
“Birds not for eating. Cats eat birds, so Grumpkin eats cats.” He grinned toothily.
Hal snorted. “See? Told you Grumpkin didn’t eat your birds.”
