Friday Fictioneers is hosted by the wonderful Rochelle, the undisputed master of what I call Sound Bite Fiction.
She sets the weekly challenge, and the standard.
This week’s delightful photo by Karuna took me straight to the happy world of Fairy Tales.
Well, what do you want me to say?
The idea, as always, is to write a story of around 100 words based on the picture, below.
Click here to hear this 1-minute story read aloud by the writer:
The Three Bears
Once upon a time there were three bears
Life was good, and food was bountiful.
There was a Daddy Bear
The streams ran fast and clean.
We caught salmon.
There was a Mummy Bear
The forest was lush.
We ate fruit and berries.
There was a Baby Bear
The air was fresh.
We lazed in the sunshine.
Then the men came.
They dammed the streams.
Someone has eaten my porridge
They cut down the trees.
Someone has broken my chair
Their dogs ran through the forest, terrorising the animals.
Then they brought guns.
And they all lived happily ever after
