Manic Monday’s Three Way Prompt – Who’s Been a Naughty Boy Then?

Word prompt: Naughty or Nice.

This short story was written in response to Laura M Baileys Manic Monday prompt:

Last week I wrote a parody christmas song, see here:

This weeks story is also inspired by the following word prompts:

Hotel, breakfast, caught

Who’s Been a Naughty Boy Then?

As I opened the door of the hotel room, I caught a glimpse of movement. A dainty foot slithered over the satin sheets, making a ripple.

I realised, with some embarrassment, that I had intruded upon a sacred moment. The couple beneath the covers were enjoying that moment of enrapture.

There was no ‘Do not disturb’ sign over the door handle to indicate that this was an inopportune, special moment.

I put the tray down on the side table and shouted “Breakfast” then ran quickly from the room.

Gosh, you really do see it all in the hotel trade, but I never expected to see Santa Claus and the Toothfairy enjoying each other’s company. 

What would Mrs Clause Say?

Well, surely that must place him at the very top of his Naughty list this year!

Multiple Word Prompt Poem – Dreams Vs Reality.

This poem was inspired by the following word prompts:

Dreaming, possible, peace

Dream, Free, Pageant, Kinky.

Dreams VS Reality

Dreaming of a world at peace

A world where wonders never cease

A world where pain and poverty decrease

When will my dream become real?


Nothing kinky or perverse

Would make my yearnful feelings worse

Yet progress may in time reverse

Without true inner strength and zeal.


A pageant play with smiles of glee.

May make my inner torment flee,

But any relief is only temporary

respite, from what I’m free to feel.


Is it possible these peaceful dreams?

When nothing is quite what it seems.

And people turn to the extremes,

Only time alone will reveal.

What are dreams and what is real.
