Lots of pretties (Friday Fictioneers)

September 22, 2016


The castle was done up like a gang of drunk fairies had thrown up inside. Tiny lights covered every surface. Long strings of tinsel caressed every banister and bells were hidden on every stair. It made sneaking anywhere impossible.

Impossible for anyone BUT me.

I could get in anywhere. That was my bizz, my joy, my job.

Yup. I’m a thief. And while everyone is down in the throne room being royal, dancing and whatever it was that rich people did, I was upstairs in the queen’s bedchamber. Ohhh, such pretties.

Footsteps sound in the corridor.

Oh no.

  1. That was a fun take on the prompt

  2. Good fun, I suspect they’ll get away from the footsteps! Nice take on the prompt too.

  3. Oh no the faeries are coming… I think they can be grim when drunk… love the humor in this

    • Thank you! This one was fun to write. I could have written so much more 😊 thanks for reading!

  4. Uh-oh. I hope he doesn’t get caught wearing the Queen’s undies. He said he was just going to steal them as a joke for his old school chums. But I’ve heard he’s had this funny streak about him since he left school. Related to Anthony Wiener is what I heard.

    What a fun read, I hope he is as good as he claims he is… I love the desciption of the castle.

  6. Ooh, grest description, Laurie. I absolutely love the opening. I wonder what pretty things she likes.

  7. I like the idea of drunk fairies throwing up pretty things instead of diced carrotsand I’ve always liked thieves creeping about big houses. Nice tale

  8. Dear Laurie,

    Pride goes before a fall. Good one.



  9. Oh and it’s a cliffhanger!! You should challenge yourself to finish it on the prompt that Rochelle gives us, whatever the picture 😉

  10. Ha! This is very fun.

    (There seems to be a couple of tense changes in this)

  11. Hmmmm! You left us guessing the pretties. Wonder if the footsteps indicated another thief!
