Bad Spell-ing

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 Bad Spell-ER

He was just not good at spelling.
He came in last at the school spell down every year for six years.
That is he sat down first.
He tried the Spell-ing Bee with the same result.

It didn't look good for him.

He needed to be able to spell in order to be a
Wizard.


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 twenty first 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 had finally mastered the art of giraffe riding and was happy with his new steed. It was faster than any horse ever could be,
But Good King Underwear was upset. He did not want his knights riding giraffes.
If Sir Lsaughsalot wanted to stay a Knight he had to get a real horse.

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

What a great 55. I love it. And the pictures are awesome. Are King Underwear's underwear bunched up? LOL. Maybe that's why he want's his knights to have horses :)

Good King Underwear needs a new attitude! Giraffes could set HIS knights FAR AND ABOVE all the other knights!

Dulce said...

Yeah, there's magic in being able to mind your p's and q's.

Spelling was not a problem for me...now, math on the other hand was a killer! Oh come on King, let them keep the damn giraffes!! :P

I think riding a giraffe would indeed be fun.

Nice 55 on the wizard.
