Microfiction Monday #22......

Susan at Stony River hosts this fun theme each Monday, so do pop over and read the others who have signed Mr. Linky. The rules are thus:

Every Monday Susan will post a picture for the subject of your story. Microfiction means the shortest of short stories. Think Aesop's fables, comic strips, or even jokes: complete stories that can be told in under a minute. For this game, the limit is a tweetable 140 characters or fewer, including punctuation and spaces.

Here's today's picture and my contribution.

“Prince Fabian I have a bad feeling about this” she whispered.

“Darling Esmeralda will you stop worrying,

Pegasus knows exactly how to land!”


Shrinky said...

Eeeek, close your eyes, Esmerelda! (Grin)

Quilly said...

It wasn't Pegasus's landing that concerned her, it was her own! LOL!

Good one!

MorningAJ said...

I feel like that on planes so heaven help us on a flying horse!

Valerie said...

I studied the picture hard and came up with nothing. Then, when I saw your take on it I realised how easy it was. Wonder why I can't do it all by myself....grins

anthonynorth said...

A bet she hopes that's right.
Enjoyed that.

Greyscale Territory said...

Love how the horse appears to be in control of the situation! Great micro!

Jinksy said...

What, no parachutes?! LOL

SouthLakesMom said...

It's not the landing, it's the reception committee!

Well done!

Ellen Brickley said...

Esmerelda is the best name for that girl!

Akelamalu said...

Good advice Shrinky ;)

I think you're right Quilly

I guess you don't like flying Morning AJ?

You should have a go Valerie, you're right it is easy.

She's trusting him Anthony ;)

I think the horse is the only one who actually knows what's happening Greyscale Territory!

No parachutes unfortunately Jinksy ;)

You could be right there South Lakes Mom.

I thought so too Ellen :)

Ellie said...

HeHe. . .too funny! I hope he does know how to land!

Have a wonderful week x

jabblog said...

I hope Esmeralda isn't psychic!

Bill ~ {The Old Fart} said...

Well it looks like Pagasus has the Landing Gear down the the Flaps ready for that perfect touch down.

clean and crazy said...

that is sweet, but he hasn't landed yet so anything can happen...

Dumdad said...

Sound of horse laughing from Paris....

Empress Bee (of the High Sea) said...

Sylvia K said...

Ron said...

Brilliant, m'dear!

A Lady's Life said...

I think everyone should have a Pegasus.
What a dream! :)

Akelamalu said...

He's had plenty of practice Ellie ;)

So does she jabblog ;)

Indeed it does Bill LOL

You're right Clean&Crazy, anything could happen.

As long as you're laughing Dumdad :)

Quite Bee :)

Glad you found it fun Sylvia

Thanks Ron xx

Wouldn't that be wonderful Lady's Life!

Pat said...

Esmerelda, go with your gut feeling and do a tuck and roll at the landing.

Very clever take on this week's MM!

Anonymous said...

Look out below LOL Great story my friend. Have a wonderful week ahead :)

septembermom said...

Pegasus is a professional! LOL.

Daryl said...


hope said...

Probably as delicate as say a...butterfly. ;)

Ms.Daisy said...

And a good thing he does too! That wouldn't be a good thing if no one knew how to land that craft! Good take on today's MM!


Finding Pam said...

What a great story in so few words. You are so great at saying so much with so few words.

CrystalChick said...

Ooh, I adore that picture! And you've come up with the perfect mini story to go with it!

secret agent woman said...

Let's hope she's in good hands!

Susan at Stony River said...

I hope Pegasus isn't a Seahorse!! Women worry more I think because our imaginations work overtime -- especially on disasters --

Maggie May said...

Well landing would be a worry as they are so high up and the horses legs are very thin!
Romantic picture...... lovely one to wrote about this week.

That's great advice to Esmeralda Pat :)

Imagine looking up and seeing a flying horse Thom :0

Indeed he is septembermom!

LOL Daryl

I would imagine so Hope :)

One definitely wants a good landing Ms Daisy, whoever is responsible. ;)

Why thankyou Pam, how kind you are.

Thankyou Crystalchick, I'm so pleased you enjoyed it.

Yes let's hope so SAW

LOL it would be rather difficult for a seahorse to land wouldn't it Susan!

You've got me worried about the horse's legs now Maggie :0

Glad you have faith in him Debbie ;)

I can understand that Tony! ;)

Glad you like Cloudia x
