AnElephantCant tell you how grateful he is
You guys support him while he is in transit
When his travels are done
He will visit each one
He promises this is how he plans it
Yup, it is Friday Fictioneer time again.
The idea is to write a very short story, circa 100 words, based on a picture prompt (below).
Jimmy had the best job in the world.
Chief of security for King Shuggie XVI of Comfortania, a tiny, picturesque and ridiculously wealthy country on the River Danube.
Everyone loved Shuggie, inside and outside the kingdom.
And yet he was poisoned.
Everyone blamed the Hungarians or the Austrians, of course.
Queen Senga, young, beautiful and very intelligent, had publicly berated poor Jimmy, and demoted him to sentry duty for 12 months.
Which would be up in a couple of weeks, and Jimmy would once again be responsible for the care of the Royal Person.
The lovers’ plan had worked perfectly.
