Flash Friday Fiction

This guy has such a surprised look on his stone face, I couldn’t help but think maybe he landed in this spot unexpectedly. 

Word Count: 100

House Elf

I’m sick and tired of hanging around day in, day out.  If I never see another pigeon, it will be too soon.  And nobody ever thinks to wash my helmet anymore.  It’s a fright, between the guano and dust.

I never thought I’d be in this fix.  My mother warned me about being a smart ass – I should have listened. But no, I had to be the funny guy one time too often.  Look where it got me.

Note to self:  don’t piss off the resident wizard.  Or at least if you do, make your last expression a happy one.

  1. I like this a lot. The idea of being stuck in the same place with your last expression, without being able to express anything to any real person is quite terrifying – only you made it quite amusing.
