The Hungry Fairy
“You wouldn’t! Whom else will you chase hour after hour at the ending of the day? Who else would light your way?” the firefly said.
“It doesn’t matter, firefly. I will turn you into a beansprout,” said the fairy again, this time with a giggle at the end.
“You wouldn’t! Whom else would you hold in the palm of your hand until the tickle of their feet make you laugh? Who else will forgive when a wave of your wand zaps them?” the firefly said.
“My dear firefly, I am hungry. Who else would I call on to fill my hunger?”
“You wouldn’t!” the firefly shrieked.
“I will turn you into a beansprout,” the fairy said with a wave of her wand.
A beansprout landed gently in the palm of her hand. She held it eye level and said, “Oh, my dear firefly, but I would.”
This week celebrates the 33rd challenge of those mind behind Trifecta. We were given 3 challenges. I answered the first one: “Write a 33-333 word response to the following quote: “What I tell you three times is true.” by Lewis Carroll. You do not have to use the actual quote in your response, but you may if you wish.”
I welcome concrit. Please feel free to share your thoughts in a comment.
Thanks for stopping in!
