A short story

for Sadje’s What Do You See? picture prompt.




fairy-tattoo (1)3.

I saw an angel yesterday, don’t laugh, I did!  Where? On top of the church tower. She was sitting there with her legs dangling down. Why are you grinning? I didn’t imagine her.

I was out running … what are you laughing at?  I need to run now and again because it’s good for my knees and if you don’t take me seriously I’ll bend you over one and give you a good spanking! That’s better, thank you.

As I was saying before I was rudely interrupted … what was I saying?

Oh yes, this girl, no, this angel was smiling at me and … what do you mean ‘how do you know she was an angel? Because she had a label on her back saying made in heaven, duh. Of course she was a bloomin’ angel!

So I waved to her … what now? Yes, I had stopped at the pub … oh I give up.

    I’m not quite sure I believe you either, Keith, but I love the idea, particularly the ‘Made in Heaven’ bit! 🙂

    This is a good bit fun, Keith. Nobody believes another when they see something unusual.

    I love the way you read, you’d have done Terry Pratchett’s stories magnificently. Just like you do you own.

    I agree with Mason. Terry Pratchett couldn’t do better!
