A Perfect Home – Friday Fictioneers Flash Fiction

Every Wednesday we get a new picture prompt for the Friday Fictioneers, a writing challenge graciously hosted by our Fairy Blog Mother Rochelle Wisoff-Fields.
The task of the challenge is to write a story: beginning, middle, and end, in 100 words or less. You can find all the Fictioneers’ stories when you click on the Froggy. Please read, comment, and if you like, join the fun. Everyone is welcome.

A Perfect Home

“I’ve found the perfect house.”

“Again? What’s it this time? The middle of a swamp?”

“Not that old story about the cabin on the flood plain again.”

“What about that new house then?”

“It’s roomy and has great view. Needs a bit of cleaning, that’s all.”

“Oh-kayyyy… So where is it?”

“Look up. There. See it?”


“Uh-huh. Solid structure, no floods…”

“The view… that’s to the inside of the human dwelling?”

“Yup. They’re funny.”

“They’ll kill us.”

“But we’re elves…”

“That ‘house’ is a wasps’ nest, Dandelion. Wasps are all they’ll see…”

“Where is Greenpeace when you need it?”

(100 words)

I pledge

  1. Ooh, fun reveal at the end! I was amused by the dialogue between the two elves. What a great sense of how they’ve had this argument before, and definitely have a different approach to house finding! And yeah, hiding in a wasp nest does pose certain risks for small flying creatures…
