Four more fifty-worders for you. This continues the story of the monsters, plus there’s a snippet from a mermaid-noir scenario I rather like.
Hope you enjoy them! Let me know – I always like reading your comments.
If you have a fifty word story of your own you would like to share, add a link to it in the comments!
This was written for the weekly fifty word fic challenge on Reddit.
This might be the start of the monster story, or it might be somewhen else. In any case, it happens in that same world.
And then what happens next:R

That’s it for this week. I finished reading a couple of books this week, so there will be a new review and fantasy-related ponderation on those, on Monday.
I’m also looking forward to World Book Day next Thursday. I may have sourced a Snow Queen of Narnia costume for a small person I know. Let’s face it, I am always going to support Interesting But Glamorous Fantasy Villain over most other costume choices. I love a Ravenclaw school scarf as much as the next person, but every playground will be full of miniature wizards next week, plus occasional tiny Iron Men. Jadis and Narnia offer more scope for dramatics.
Some parents really go for it on World Book Day. A child last year turned up to school dressed as a dictionary. She walked round all day in an enormous cardboard book costume, covered with words. It must have taken her mum ages, but it was absolutely brilliant and the kid looked great. And it was the coolest thing ever because *that was the costume she’d chosen*. Wouldn’t we all love to be a book?
Which reminds me, I must create a prop box of Turkish Delight for the Snow Queen to tempt Edmund with.

Excellent stories! It’s amazing when a writer can create a plot with so few words. I’ve managed one 55-word story, but that’s it.

Thank you! If you want to share your story in a link here, go ahead! I’d love to see it and I think 55 words is close enough 🙂

Wow! Lots packed in there. I liked the one where the angels eyes showed triumph. Said so much in so few words.

Thank you! Some backstory about the angels, and the monsters, coming soon.
