Stay Still

CCC 182

“Stay really still and keep watching out the window,” Teddy said.

“Then what will happen?” Joey enquired.

“Well if we don’t draw attention to ourselves, this lady with a camera will come along and take a picture of our window. I don’t know why she does it, but she come walking by places like this snapping photos. If we’re luck we’ll get to be in one.”

Rivalry

CCC 170

The rivalry between St Stephen’s and St Michael’s had started out as a little good-natured fun. It was little things like which WI could get the most new members, or which parish could earn more in their fete. Then came the year when St Michael’s purposely scheduled their parish picnic on the day St Stephen’s had pencilled in at the county park. Stephen’s responded by hiring both of the area’s donkeys during the nativity play season, forcing Michael’s to go without one. Things have gotten so bad between these two churches that even their gargoyles are shooting spit balls at one another.

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #159

Monarch’s Chair

Monarch of the Wood, I have seen your chair

Why was it that you were not there?

Is it that your realm invasion faces

With plastic, and filth in your precious places?

Have you gone – your lands to defend?

Shall you return at the battle’s end?

Or shall we weep that you have fled the place?

Please say, I pray, that’s not the case

“I don’t know,” the contractor said looking at the damage. “That’s three times in the last two months. Are you sure you want me to fix it again?”

It’s the principle of the thing,” the councillor replied.

“If you say so. I’ll have my guys start in the morning.”

“Very much appreciated,” the official said. “Try a heavier gauge this time.”

“Okay, but I still don’t think it’s going to make much difference to that Sasquatch.”
