For this weeks Flash Friday we got 300 words to write about the following. It was certainly an unusual prompt this week!
Unicornio, by Salvador Nunez, shared as part of the Peru Arte Valor effort.
Frank sat quietly in the room whilst his whole life came crashing down around him. He nudged his lawyer in the hopes of a miraculous recovery, but he only got a whimper in response. He should have known his ex wouldn’t play fair. The down side to pissing off the queen of the fairies was that she was extremely creative in finding ways to make his life miserable.
Her lawyer was a twelve foot dragon, which was making this whole affair rather one sided. The dragon spread its leathery wings and announced, “My client is entitled to the house. However, she is graceful enough to allow her ex to keep the land it is on. She has already secured lakeside property in fairy land and will teleport the entire structure to it. He may keep the door, as she would like to be able to slam it in his face when she leaves.”
The judge nodded along feebly. The dragon continued, “She also requires both the magic carpet and the unicorn.”
Frank blared out, “Why does she need two vehicles? The bitch has wings!”
The judge ignored him.
“Their pre-nup quite clearly states anything she brought to this union would remain hers. The Unicorn was a wedding gift from her Aunty Molar, the magic carpet a weaving project she undertook without help from her ex-husband.”
Franks lawyer whimpered, “Sounds reasonable.”
“My client has agreed to leave the kitchen table, because of the memories it holds of her ex-husbands terrible cooking.”
His lawyer turned to him like this was an accomplishment, a victory to be celebrated. Frank balled his fists and resisted the urge to punch him.
The dragon smiled a wicked grin, all fangs and embers, “Finally, my client shall allow her ex to keep the shovel, so he may dig his own grave.”
