~Second of all~

It's time for the Second Crusade Challenge!!
So, in 100 words or less (you're keeeeling me Rach!) we are to write a flash fiction story starting with the words, "The goldfish bowl teetered". For even more of a challenge, write it in the genre you write.
Hmmm, so here is my Paranormal flash fiction starring a goldfish!
Lol!


The goldfish bowl teetered on the edge of the counter. Light flashed inside, casting warbled light on the walls.
"Creepy carny guy gave me a radioactive fish!" I yelled, ducking. I heard a strange whine then a loud pop,  glass shards & water sprayed the kitchen. I peeked around the corner & gasped. A hot, yet very naked, guy replaced the fish. He blinked at the water dripping from his dark hair. "What the hell?" he mouthed before noticing me. He startled and grabbed the glass fruit bowl next to him, oranges bounced at my feet.
I smiled & wondered if I should tell him the bowl just magnified & distorted.
"Hi," I said instead. "I named you Ariel, I'm guessing that'll never do."

Whatever! HIS name could be Skidmark and I bet no one would care!

Thank you CW's Smallville for casting hot guys
and someone named cherryvamp over at Photobucket for the pic!

  26. Your story made me smile and my mind went straight to the gutter. Thx. Nothing like a hot naked man standing in the kitchen. :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Not a hot genie in a bottle, but a hot bewitched guy in a fishbowl. Where can I get one????

    ReplyDelete
  28. Stick with Ariel. It may help to level the playing field for the rest of us. At least we could feel better about ourselves by teasing him.

    Thank you guys for laughing or at least saying you laughed. Haha!
    @Thingy~ OMG! Too funny! Yes, yes, it does sound like he is being Koi! (snickers)
    @Rach~ You and me both!
    @Alberta~ I think your imagination should just run with it. ;)
    @Adina~ I think we should all make a pact that if any one of us find such a goldfish it'd be only fair to share. ☺☺
    I thoroughly enjoyed reading everyone's stories! A very fun Challenge!
