Fandango Flash Fiction Challenge # 5

So now it’s time for my fifth weekly Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge. The image below is from Google Images and is labeled for public use.

He was given the role of an extra, and that was of an ape. It didn’t dampen his elation or his enthusiasm. It was the break he was looking for and he was sure that he will impress the producer with his acting skills. They place a lot of tiny dot like monitors capturing the movements and at the end they would project the vision of the ape over that of the real actor’s face.

He went to the zoo to study how the apes behaved. He was so well prepared for his role that he was asked to guide others who were cast as apes as how to use the proper body language of an ape. But when the movie was released, not one of his friends or family could recognize him, he was so well camouflaged as an ape!

Insomnia

Twisting and turning all night, trying to catch a few hours or even minutes of sleep. The rest that you treasure is eluding you. But alas it’s morning and though you have hardly closed your eyes all night, there are chores to be done. Things to see to. Kids have to be woken up to get ready for school and the breakfast to be readied.

You will get up and do the required. But it would feel as if you are not all there. Like the walking dead or the zombie. You go into action despite feeling like as if a part of your soul is missing. Even opening the eyes seems like a difficult chore, as the eyelids feel like they are glued together.

You are so tired and longing to get a few hour of shuteye! But it seems like that you will have to wait till nightfall. Hopefully tonight you will get some sleep.

Fandango Flash Fiction Challenge #3

Amazing, just amazing

That’s what everyone was saying

Look up in the sky, for the loveliest vision

Who is she, who is she

That’s what everyone was asking

There was no explanation that fit right

At nightfall, the vision began to glow

In spectacular colors of the promised rainbow

The people more amazed than before finally found

The cause of all this furor

A new way of advertising and been invented

To project the image into the clouds

To entice, to amaze to, to sell

They wanted to conquer the skies

Fandango Flash Fiction Challenge # 2

Each week I will be posting a photo I grab off the internet and challenge bloggers to write a relatively short flash fiction piece inspired by the photo. While there are no style or definitive word limits, I suggest trying to keep your stories to under 300 words.

So now it’s time for my second weekly Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge. The image below is from ColiN00B@Pixabay.com.

The life for Mr Lighthouse was getting difficult. He wanted to have a quiet exit. The constant comparison between him and the newly arrived energy savers and halogen bulbs was so disheartening. So one night he planned his escape. His permanent abode was on the night stand by Katie’s bed. Well at least she wasn’t comparing him to other more “efficient ” light sources all the time. And he did love the little girl but his mind was made up now.

So when everyone had gone to sleep, he quietly climbed down from the night stand and approached the switch socket to remove the switch and be on his way. As he pulled the switch out of the socket. The room was thrown into total darkness and suddenly, Katie sat up with a frightened gasp. “What happened ” she said into the darkened room. She had always slept with the little night light switched on and now finding the room in complete darkness made her afraid of the monsters in the cupboard.

Ah! Now Mr Lighthouse realized his big mistake. He had forgotten how Katie was used to sleep with a light kept on at night. He felt that by trying to walk out of her life, he was being totally selfish. So very quietly he inserted the switch back into the socket and the room filled with his mellow light. Katie breathed a sigh of relief and turned her side slipping back into the peaceful slumber of the young. And Mr Lighthouse…… he slowly crept back to his position on the table and promised himself to be always there for the little girl.

Stepping daintily over the jungle floor Kira, the princess of the Druids’ came near the stream. The deer and other small creatures were captivated by the music of the flute. She was so lost in her own thoughts that she never noticed how one of the stag was venturing quite menacingly towards her. The stag, bearing huge antlers came very near to her, so near that she could feel one of the antler piercing through her dress and hurting her leg. She stopped playing the flute and in confusion looked at the stag. But it no longer was a stag. It was changing its form and a devilish figure was emerging. She uttered a scream and called for one of her people for help. But the devil had her in his hold, a sharp long knife held to her throat. The guards came running to help the princess but were held at bay by the threat of harm to her by the devil.

“What do you want ” She asked the devil. ” Just your life” he replied. Kira tried to wriggle free but he tightened his hold and almost suffocated her. In desperation she pleaded to him to spare her life. The devil pretended to consider this appeal, but he had no intention of sparing her. Right at that moment, Elfred, who had sneaked behind the devil shot his arrow though it’s heart with such skill as not to hurt his beloved Kira. The devil went up in smoke with a shrill warning that he will return soon to accomplish his mission
