Fandango Flash Fiction Challenge # 126

Fandango is the host of Fandango Flash Fiction Challenge

Welcome to Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge. The photo below is from MarcSimonetti at

For the visually challenged writer, the image is of small group of people marching in a desolate, wintry, mountainous area between two tall stone towers


Home was not that far now! Trudging in freshly fallen snow was hard work and they had to keep both their morale and energy up if they wanted to make it back home alive.

Their mission was a failure, and they had nothing to show for their adventure. So many days spend looking for food and they found none. It was as if all the animals had left the forest and had migrated to warmer weather.

Olga, their leader was depressed. Defeat was not a thing she liked to admit. Her sister came up to her and patted her back. “You are a good leader my sister. You bright us all back to safely. We love to hunt another day for food. Meanwhile, there’s always fruit and stored wheat”

“Yes, you’re right sis, we should learn to rely less on meat and more on nature’s bounty to sustain life. Thanks!”

Surprisingly, they were accorded a warm welcome back home.

  1. There are so many wonderful traditions in regards to food from earth. Though some foods from earth are more easily digestible than others. This reminds me of the fable ‘The Ant and the Grasshopper’ – always be prepared with back up stores! 😀
