Microfiction Monday #22

Susan from Stony River, welcomes us to Microfiction Monday,
where a picture paints just 140 characters.
I like to use my 140 characters to tell
the most complicated story possible.
That means you have to be prepared to read between the lines.

If you’d like to join us, stop by Susan’s, pick up the picture prompt,
compose your story in 140 character (or less), post it,
and sign in at Susan’s place, then commence in the sharing!

No Greater Love

Understanding the cost in trade, Maestro Cherry still begged the Turquoise Fairy to make the puppet-daughter he loved human.

Despite the cost in trade, Maestro Cherry was pleased that the Turquoise Fairy made the puppet-daughter he loved human.


Please forgive my drastic edit after many had read the story.  I didn’t make the first one clear enough.

  1. Loved your take on the picture. I had such trouble with this one, I started out thinking of abuse and was stalled , couldn’t write it!
    Went to the whimsical side.
    Yours brought a lot of emotions, and i just loved it!

  2. A weekend away was very good for your creativity! Wow. The price we pay for what we “really” want is often more than we expected.

    It reminds me a little of Jepthah’s vow…not making rash promises. Judges 11:29-40

  3. OMG.
    So many of us write captions and silliness (and believe me I do like captions and silliness too) but THIS is a real story, and it’s so beautiful!

    I just knew there was a story in this photo when I took it nearly a year ago — never found it. But this was it! And oh wow, what a punch it has.

    Thanks Quilly.

    Okay now I’m going back up to read the comments — looks like Thom got busy up there.

  4. We’re on spring break down here so I’m way behind the cure on this one. I love that picture. It doesn’t look sinister to me, just contemplative.

    Glad I didn’t miss Punny Monday since I slept in!

    • Linda — To me it seems pain-filled. I truly enjoy how we can all look at the same thing and our own personal experiences lead us to different emotions.

  5. For so few words, you create such a TALE!
    For so many comments, you are much loved.

    Great job, Quilly.

    I hope you will join the WEEKEND FUNNIES,
    you can too cute not to be able to write some
    original jokes!
