Friday 55 Flash Fiction #194 Eat.....


Mum said eat, whether you're hungry or not.

Eat as much as possible, you'll need it if you want to grow up like me.

Munch, munch, 'scrumptious' she thought. 
 
 I'm getting full, I'll wrap myself up and sleep now.

The caterpillar awoke to a miracle, she had turned into a beautiful butterfly like her mother.


Friday 55 Flash Fiction is brought to you by G-man (Mr Knowitall). The idea is you write a story in exactly 55 words. If you want to take part pop over and let G-man know when you've posted your 55.

That would be wonderful for sure Brian!

I was always told to eat up too AJ and I didn't turn into a butterfly either. ;)

Butterflies are the most beautiful creatures I agree Valerie :)

You're so clever making up these flash fictions. I don't think I could do it at all!

My mom loved butterflys. We often see them in Santa Barbara and here in MO. We always say "howdy Grandma" when we see a butterfly.

Always brings a grin...:-)
