Dirty Bird

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 Tern is a dirty bird.
It messed up the town.
They wanted it gone.

But they were very hard to get rid of.

For loud noise and gunshots didn't work.
You had to hit them with a rock.
Thus it was that over the city hall the town motto read

Leave no Tern unstoned

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

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

In the great fight between Knight Day and Knight Nite , Nite defeated Day, which darkened Day's day.
Nite took Day's seat at the square table.
So we now had :
Seat one- The Shining Knight
Seat two -the One legged Knight
Seat three- Knight Nite
Seat Four-Knight Day
Seat Twelve- Knight Laughsalot
Sir Laughsalot stopped laughing.
