I’m looking forward to what these prompts inspire, so here’s the picture:
And the words:
“Benny gave her an admiring look. He had never heard a woman swear so much in such a short time. He thought it sounded delightful.” – The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared – Jonas Jonasson
Benny the tiny dragon gave her an admiring look. He had never heard a woman swear so much in such a short time. He thought it sounded delightful. Samantha however was totally unaware of her admirer. Benny was so cleverly camouflaged that he was hardly distinguishable from the background.
After Samantha had purged out her anger against the event organizers, turned around to leave. She would not be performing here tonight, it was a very mismanaged affair. The manager was a scoundrel and a cheat.
Benny followed her discreetly and managed to hop in her Jeep without her realizing it. A few miles into the journey, he decided to take a risk.
“You’re absolutely right, the man is trying to scam you”
Samantha was startled and braked the vehicle violently.
“Who are you?” She looked around suspiciously.
“I am Benny, you can say that I am a visitor to your planet. I can help you with your plans if you trust me” he said making himself visible to her.
Strangely enough, she didn’t feel fear but rather a sense of curiosity.
“How will you help me?”
“I may look small but I have special powers”.
“I’ll tell you my plan!”
And the story continues;
As both prompts are from Deb, I am piggybacking this story on the previous one!

Now its time to head intergalatic and explore the fartherest dimensions or just next door if you skew the definition of the term. The choice is entirely yours but there’s a limit – 42 words only.
Benny said pridefully, “I am not from earth. I have come from a planet far away. Our species are much more advanced than anything you know. With my powers, fame and fortune will be yours. You just have to help me in return”.
Will Samantha take up Benny’s offer? What could be the consequences of such an alliance?
If you guys like this story, I will write some more on it!
