FFfAW Challenge – 186th

This week’s photo prompt is provided by wildverbs


It was a cylinder like thousands of others, each with a picture on the top denoting the contents within.
Every year, The Creator would enter his library and select a handful of seed from each cylinder, then disperse them to the lands below in a shower of rain.
Unfortunately, the latest trainee got his wires crossed and the rain splattered down on the cylinders, erasing some of the markings thereon and thus altering the seeds inside.
The Creator was too late to save his magical Unicorns, but instead introduced horses as a replacement.Sadly some of the Big Cats lost their tails and Bears their colour, but he salvaged what he could.
The Winged Lion didn’t escape damage and now seemed surrounded by flame, so he locked it away in his private chambers. There would be time to release it, but not yet.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    All the posts I have read on this photo prompt are all very original, and so is this. Where do you guys find your ideas?

    That is why important tasks are not to be left with trainees. Look what he has done.

  5. Can you please request HIM to release the winged lion now, before we humans destroy the world and so never get to see it? 🙂

  6. Oh, I hope the winged lion is a friendly sort. Great story.
