Friday Fictioneers: *het ptse

By now you know the rules, and if not, please do visit Rochelle at Addicted to Purple HERE.  A special thanks to Sandra Crook for the use of her photograph today!


Het Ptse

Shivering she got up and looked around.  She was ravenous, and she wasn’t alone.

The man there with her seemed as bewildered as she felt.  Looking about,  she could see no others, yet sensed that they were being watched.  To what purpose?



Startled, the man quickly turned.  “When did you get here?”

“I was about to ask you the same.”  she chuckled.

“I can’t remember.”

 “Mm.  Same here.”  She was salivating.

“You hungry too?  Shall we fi …”

“STARVING!  she roared, and ate him.


Looking into the habitat, Echerthwat mumbles, “Ti wlaays ercesp em tuo ehnw hse soed ttha.”


*Anagram challenged?  Email me here (farmlet(at)att(dot)net)  😉

NOTICE:  I’ve never done anagrams before, but needed a way to mimic an unknown language without offending any other language speaker.  😉  I also needed it to be fairly easy for my readers to translate and gain the meaning from that last sentence. Unfortunately, due to the nature of my story set up, I think the name of the last character “GartfAAnale” was throwing everyone off, so I changed it.  😯

Friday Fictioneers: for immediate release

Once again I have been bitten by the 100 word flash fiction bug and Rochelle’s picture prompt for the Friday Fictioneers entry on August 3rd.    It gets a little bit easier each time I try!  Thanks, Rochelle!

A special “Thank you” to Jennifer Pendergast for the use of her photograph!

The bees, having become tired of the chemical assault that was destroying their colonies, began in secret to produce a Super Queen.


As you are aware, work  on the Eximius Reginam (ER-1) prototype has been a success.   The ER-1 has been found impervious to any chemical assault known to man.   Working in secret she has produced an army of warrior class bees capable of being sprayed and still functioning.   The warriors are trained eaters of the agricultural machinery that have been poisoning earth and killing our working class bees worldwide…


The bees are finding it hard to sleep tonight.
