[Flash Fiction] Fit For A Fairy

“Blend in, they say.” A graceful flick of her wrist and a vine of bright green leaves slid down the brick wall.

“Don’t attract attention, they say.” Another flick and vines of maroon and scarlet followed, entwining playfully around each other.

“Well, I say, the bolder the better!” She raised her hands high above her in a final hurrah and leaves of brilliant gold and violet scurried down the walls of the little house, weaving through each other in a colorful mosaic.

“And for the final touch,” She pointed a delicate finger at the wooden door and streaks of cerulean paint appeared to do her bidding.

“Now that’s a house fit for a fairy, don’t you think?” She grinned at the squirrel at her feet, who was eyeing her masterpiece with wide, distraught eyes. “And if they disagree, go tell them to kiss my shiny wings.”

With a sprightly flourish, she disappeared into her new home, leaving the squirrel to trudge away slowly, contemplating how he would tell them the bad news.

  1. Great prompt take. I love the idea of this fairy decorating her home in colourful nature being artistic and revolting against the ideas of other fairies! Glad she did. Poor squirell who has to tell them her new modo, her way to live life with brilliance, not blending in. Well written Jadem 🙂

    1. Ooh, I didn’t realize the Sleeping Beauty similarity but I love that you saw it! Isn’t it amazing how we can each read the same piece of writing and see something different? Glad you enjoyed this, Maria :)!
