Flash 55-Mary Poppins

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:

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 thirtieth chapter in the exciting ongoing adventures of Sir Laughsalot and Robberhood.

The entire story to date is HERE
The most recent chapters are HERE

Good King Underwear had his throne back but with the loss of the Gray Knight only 3 Knights were left. In the First Chair was the Knight in Shining Armour. In the second the Knight with one leg and one arm. Sir Laughsalot was still assigned the twelfth chair. It was a very lonely square table.

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