Welcome to “Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge.”

The photo below is from Nicolae_Balt at

For the visually challenged writer, the photo shows two men in a field on a windy day attempting to inflate a hot air balloon.


“Hurry up, will you. All the balloons are already up in the air”

“It’s not up to me, this blasted gas cylinder is broken. The flame goes sideways and the air is not heating up to rise the balloon”

I want to win this race, whatever the cost!

You don’t mean to…….. I don’t think that’s a good idea!”

I have no choice, do I?”

Merlin waved his wand clandestinely and the balloon was up right and ready to rise. What he failed to realize that these weren’t the medieval times. It was the 21st century.

There were several clicks of mobile phone around them. Within moments, the pictures were all over the internet. Merlin had to forge his own death. And he was put on probation from the wizarding council for public display of magic!
