100 Word Wednesday: Week 59 – Darcy’s Odd things Emporium.


Image: Linda Xu

The blue bike had been against the wall for some weeks before it wasn’t. Behind the wall was Darcy’s Odd Things Emporium.

Darcy stocked a frightening array of odd things. Scaly creatures in bottles, some without scales, the furry, the curly and the naked.

Not only were there odd things on the shelves but an odd thing might often be the assistant who sold you what it was you desired.

The bike attracting attention was taken into the shop and mounted in the window next to a large clear bottle in which some thought was a cyclist in yellow lycra.

    I hope the pale blue bike didn’t belong to the cyclist in yellow Lycra. Those colours would clash terribly 🙂

  2. Oh Michael, I liked this. That last line really packed a punch!
