Twittering Tales – Conquering the Dragon

Mashup of photos by pendleburyannette (dragon) & MichaelGaida (forest) at Pixabay.com

 

It was a crazy initiation,

Fight the dragon, impress the nation,

but something sporadic, unplanned,

Happened that shocked the land.

They sent a novice, a raw beginner

But oddly, he returned the winner

He didn’t fight, attack or defend,

He talked to the Dragon and made him a friend.

They’d been stuck on the island for seven years. At first, they’d hated each other. She thought he had a massive chip on his shoulder and he thought she was terribly stuck up.

It was only when the helicopter came to rescue them, did they realise they never wanted to be apart.

She sat under an umbrella, her pale body sheathed in fine linen with bare skin smothered in sun-cream.

She gazed at the young and foolish who camp out burning in the full sun.

A few laughed at the young girl covered from head to toe.

She had the last laugh; she was nearly fifty.

It was a beautiful spot; Couples arrived at the secluded pool through a candle-lit passage. He’d had to scout hard to find the opening at the top.

Since she’d rejected him, he’d planned his revenge. The click of the trigger echoed in that bowl-shaped hollow. So did the screams.

The engine gave a sputter as Geoff drove into his garage. He shouldn’t drive in the dark, but the streets weren’t safe for walking.

At one point he’d felt a bump and thought he heard someone screaming for him to stop, likely a carjacker. He wasn’t going to make that mistake.

Twittering Tales – “Cutting Words”

Cutting Words

The Anaesthetic hadn’t worked. She was aware of lying naked while a doctor made an irreverent, downright vulgar remark about her breasts. Being bashful, this was mortifying.

Then, without any finesse, the surgeon sliced her open and she heard him say. “That’s not right at all!”

Twittering Tales – Broken Empathy

Her instinct told her something was wrong. Then she saw the white powdered glass, like snow that glittered on the path, then the broken window.

What hurt most was the message written in ink across her white kitchen tiles that showed a lack of empathy.

“Thanks for the hospitality”.

Sneaking downstairs she opened the fridge and gazed at the verdant, healthy food.

“Damn this diet” she whispered.

Then, spying a wedge of Cheese she grabbed it and was about to eat it when she saw her daughter staring.

“I’m lucky you’re there, Sweetie. You saved me from myself”.

As he glided across his rooftop pool supported by a noodle, Suddenly the sky turned black across Gotham City.

He admired several of his enemy’s traits. Lex was tenacious, forthright and had the Imagination to think of something to cause havoc. Now He’d met his match in Superman.

Twittering Tales – Hidden Legacy

They found the letters to her lawyer in the old station wagon, in a battered chocolate tin shaped like a carousel.

Covered in dust and cobwebs after the extensive search of the house and yard, he sat down to read them.

His wife called out “Did the old bat say where the Money is?”
