Quiet Crooks

Flash Fiction 55
Friday 55 Flash Fiction is brought to you by G-man (Mr Knowitall). The idea is you write a story in exactly 55 words. If you want to take part pop over and let G-man know when you've posted your 55.Here is today's story:
The Quiet Crooks

They were very, very quiet crooks but they weren't very smart.
They could take all your stuff and never wake you up.
They were quiet. So quiet.
The local newspaper said so.
But soon they got caught.
They were not master minds of crime.
But according to the paper they were Master
Mimes of Crime.


Since I discovered it was okay I am writing a second flash 55 which will be a continuous story but a complete story every week. Here then is the eighteenth chapter in the exciting ongoing adventures of Sir Laughsalot and Robberhood
The entire story to date is HERE
The most recent chapters are HERE

Sir Laughsalot left his frog in the stable and hopped up to the castle.
He was hardly laughing.
He wanted his horse back.
It was darn hard riding a frog and certainly not a laughing matter.
He really needed Moreless the somewhat incompetent wizard.
Why can you never find a wizard when you need one.

Of course the dragons were busy today you can see them HERE.

Your pad is always good for a chuckle and some damn fine reading!

Thank you so much for this wonderful contribution, and have a Great Week-End...Galen

I'll reply as quietly as possible ;-)

Crook or mime, quiet would be an occupational necessity.

Amused, amazed, and awes I am--from reading your 55's.

Imagination reigns! It is near to God-like, this innocuous, innocent fun we are having here. Thank you SO much, Doc.

Groan ----the master mimes of crime. Very punny. I happen to be the rare one who loves even the lowest form of humor ---puns.
