Flash Fiction 55 -Mercy

“Mercy” the frail old lady cried as they carried her through town toward the stake
“No mercy for witches”, they responded.

“Mercy” she cried again.

But they were in no mood for mercy. They put her down at the stake.

“Then there will be no mercy for you“,

she said and turned them into green frogs.


Since I discovered it was okay I am writing a second flash 55 which will be a continuous story but a complete story every week. Here then is the fifth chapter in the exciting ongoing adventures of Sir Laughsalot and Robberhood

Good King Underwear’s Square Table has problems. His first Chair Knight just lost a leg fighting Robberhood. His second Chair Knight won’t stop laughing.. His third Chair Knight tips over easier than the one with one leg. And if all this was not bad enough the Square Table itself has been attacked by angry termites.

Last week Thursday I started a story which I thought would be done on Saturday but it spiraled out of control and is back today. I hope to finish it tomorrow.

Attorney Don T Winmuch. Having been filled in secretly by the Police Chief now told the DA about the woman that was there when the Orchestra leader was shot. He demanded that Charles be released immediately.
The DA was so angry she turned purple. It was sad because purple was definitely not her color.

To be continued tomorrow

Of course the dragons will be busy today you can see them HERE.

Friday 55 Flash Fiction is brought to you by G-man (Mr Knowitall). The idea is you write a story in exactly 55 words. If you want to take part pop over and let G-man know when you've posted your 55.
News from Pigeon Falls
The little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and life is back to normal
Oops was not sure they could hold out much longer. The demon was still gaining power and was trying to box them in so he could draw all of their power into himself. She had only a moment or two to decide on keeping their power out of his hands by killing all of them. She wasn’t sure she could bring herself to do it.
Then everything changed. The demon continued to wave his hands but they no longer felt the pressure of his power bursts. In addition he no longer seemed to be growing. Tommy UK used his special vision and said it looks like something has cut all the vines or tubes leading to the demon. But they hadn’t seen anything. How did it happen?
At the same time the demon seemed to be getting angrier and angrier and was firing his power bursts wildly but they didn’t seem to be going anywhere. What in the world was going on?
Tommy UK said to Oops whatever is going on this is a chance to let the animals go. So she took one side and he took the other and as fast as they could they traced the tubes and opened the doorways. Out came wolves, moose, cow, pigs, chickens, dogs, cats, rabbits, bears, and on and on. If the demon ever broke loose there would be no batteries left for him.
But what was holding it and why?

Wrap UP
Busy day. I have bid twice on the house. I put Sunday's bulletin on the Church website. I visited all of the flash 55 blogs that had so indicated when i checked in to G-man. Betty and I finished the bird house stand. we will put it out tomorrow. We made a batch of saffron buns with a new recipe I visited all the blogs that left a comment yesterday. Now I need a breathing treatment.

So, was it the ghost, who gave up piano playing long enough to cut the cords, or was it an answer to a prayer? -- Or both.

How long does the bidding go on the house? The suspense is KILLIN' me!

Was the new bun recipe BETTER? You must let me know -- I haven't made mine yet, and since I didn't get them made of Mother's Day weekend, I'm going to hold off until Krysti gets home because I want her to be able to try them. I'm anxious to make them though!
