AnElephantCant deny he loves street parties
With flags on strings and cool decorations
Lots of folk having fun
Dancing around in the sun
All joining happily in sublime celebrations
Once again it is Friday Fictioneer time.
Presented weekly by party animal Rochelle, these tasty appetisers are created by her glamorous guests and a gate-crashing Elephant.
The idea is to write a very short story, circa 100 words, based on this picture prompt (below).
The annual festival is in full swing.
The crowds gather as the dignitaries arrive and the speeches begin.
Cameras are everywhere, official and tourist, but he is unconcerned.
The late morning sun beats mercilessly, so he is unobtrusive in sunglasses and wide-brimmed hat.
Like most of the spectators he is sweating, but that is largely due to the partially-inflated pads under his clothing.
His shoes are of slightly different heights to disguise his walk.
His dart flies noiselessly towards the man at the microphone.
He vanishes up the narrow cobbled lane on his stolen moto before his target is dead.
