FFFC #105 – Chronicles

Welcome to Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge. Each week, Fandango will post a photo he grabs off the internet and challenge bloggers to write a flash fiction piece or a poem inspired by the photo. There are no style or word limits.

My Submission 🙂

I met a Faun, then a White Witch. He was gentle, while she was a b*tch. 

She lured me in with alluring treats. I couldn’t resist her enchanting feats. 

My siblings came in like a raging fire. Ruthlessly, they fought, but their futures seemed dire.

It wasn’t until they met a large beast. Oh, how his jowls drooled, itching to feast.

With the soft-spoken lion on our side, we became his children, his pride. 

Eternal winter was ours to break. Their entire world was at stake.

A scuffle erupted, at our hand, but we conquered the witch and restored the land.

  1. Wonderful poem. When my children were small, I discovered a place to order Turkish delight… and did do. I haven’t had it in a while, though. Ah… the faun, the witch, and the lion. Love that.

    1. It was my favorite story book as a child. Then, my little sister and I discovered the animated movie, which we watched 50x over. When the live action version came out, we watched it in the theatre on my Birthday, which was also New Years Eve. Even though I was old enough to drink/party, we dressed in comfy clothes, ordered popcorn, and I had the best birthday ever 🙂

      1. It was my favorite, too. The movie versions are amazing in how they can take me back. I’m going to consider reading it again, if I have a copy around. Only seems fitting to read it in real-book form.

        I think I’ll look up one of the movies right now. 😃

        That does sound like the very best birthday possible.
