Microfiction Monday #43

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 spaces and punctuation.

Here's today's picture and my contribution

Margaret had been praying for days and now the fairy was here to grant her wish.

Silently fairy dropped the odour eater into Ebenezer’s shoe.

Hate to say it but the common fairy wouldn't last a minute next my shoes even with my wife wishing for something very similar.
