Gnome More

Ah, yes, the weekly Carrot Ranch Flash Fiction Challenge, and we were tasked with creating stories about GNOMES. And of course, I had to toss in a cat. A cat who has the last laugh!

Thank you, to Charli Mills for these weekly opportunities to keep our wits and pencils sharp! Join her by FOLLOWING her blog atΒ

The top shelf of the bookcase was where Claudius took his naps. Lorraine always left it clear, so he could stretch out whenever the mood struck.

This Christmas, however, was different. She was decorating the bookcase. Now, there was garland hanging everywhere and wee figurines scattered on the shelves.

With a swipe of a mighty clawed paw, the garland was merely tinsel. One by one, each of the wee figurines was sent crashing to the floor. Sorry, not sorry.

As Claudius looked down from his perch he thought, be it ever so humble, this is no place for gnomes!

  1. Ha! I love this very catly reaction to the decorations! And I’ll bet that if Lorraine tries to put the decorations back up, Claudius will waste no time exerting his authority again!
