September 17: Flash Fiction Challenge – The Three Mice

September 17, 2020, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story of mice. It can feature any variety of the little critters in any situation. Are the the character or the inciting incident? Use any genre, including BOTS (based on a true story). Go where the prompt leads!

 There were three of them. John, Jack and Jeano. They lived happily behind the pantry in the old farmer’s house.

The farmer’s wife disliked them and was ever vigilant to do them harm.

She didn’t care that they were blind and so just felt their way around.

She ambushed them one Saturday morning and cut off their tails.

They ran in circles, why they asked why?

There was mayhem and chaos, the farmer’s wife chopping and chasing, the mystified mice scurrying to and fro.

They found refuge behind the pantry, and there they plotted and planned a rightful revenge.

    Tut tut too bad for the poor mice.

  3. Oh, poor mice. I wonder how they are going to exact revenge

  4. Lyn says:

    Well how much revenge can three blind mice exact? Well done, Michael, that was clever 😀

  5. I was thinking along the same lines for a story that included three blind mice, a farmers wife and a carving knife. I wonder if their revenge was sweet? I’d hate to be in her shoes.
    Excellent storytelling, Michael.

  6. Nice one. Michael. Made me chuckle.
