Microfiction Monday #26

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.

Pretty Polly’s smile hid a dark secret.

She wasn’t what she appeared to be,

as the other guests at the Halloween party were about to discover.

Yes she does look innocent Valerie but looks can be deceiving. ;)

Quilly said...

I think she tried trick-or-treating here last night. Scary little creature!

Linda said...

Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of innocent looking witches?!?

Dave said...

Polly is a sophisticated bag lady and her cat is transgender.

KB said...

She does look a little too good to be true.

Annelisa said... have my teeth a-chattering! When innocence is a cover for something...horrible, it's way worse than if the horribleness is all showing!!

Hi sweetie, Just so you blog is total disaster. I broke it already! :-( I can't get to my posts, and I'm returning (actually, with relief! :-) ) to my old haunting ground at words that flow...I haven't got the energy to go through the whole moving process again :-S

secret agent woman said...

Ha! That's pretty much what I thought of her when I first saw that picture.

ninotaziz said...

What a cliffhanger!

Jamie said...

Oh I may have to join in on these memes. Nice complete story for the readers if not the party guests.

Spiky Zora Jones said...

aakelamalu: See that's what everyone always have to watch out for the innocent looking ones.

no wonder no one trusted me...and with good cause.


later sweetie. xxx

San said...

So much deftly left to the imagination.

Shrinky said...

Never trust a sweet, seemingly innocent child!

Akelamalu said...

LOL you could be right Bee ;)

Ah you're perceptive Hope ;)

Why thankyou Cloudia x

Something terrible SeptemberMom :0

Glad you liked it Susan :)

Well it was Halloween Trav LOL

Oh you've met Pretty Polly then Quilly? ;)

I don't want to find out Linda, do you? ;)

Hey you could be right Dave!

She definitely looks innocent doesn't she KB?

Her smile is chilling Annelisa, you're right.

You saw through her smile too SAW!

Yes it is Ninotaziz. ;)

Oh yes, do join in Jamie, the more the merrier!

LOL I'm sure your sweet smile was genuine Spiky! (wink)

Of course San :)

Could be a big mistake Shrinky ;)

Patti said...

Hmmm...I was going to say looks can be deceiving, but I see you already did!

She is going to do something bad with that broom, I just know it!

Pretty Polly is not too jolly.

Akelamalu said...

You could be right Patti ;)

Patti said...

haha ~ I need to exercise my imagination now and then. Enjoy your Sunday!

Akelamalu said...

I enjoy writing without a conclusion giving my readers something to think about Patti :)
