T(r)oll Bridge

“Who’s that trip-trapping over my bridge?”

The three billygoats prepared to flee.

“There’s a toll!” said the troll.

“Is that all?” said Mother Goat. “How much is it?”

“An arm and a leg,” said the troll. “Or two legs, in your case.”

Now the goats have to drag themselves everywhere.


This story was based on the TypeTrigger prompt “takes a toll.”

The Stars Awaken

Every morning, as the sun comes up, the stars awaken.

Stars are not nocturnal, as many assume. They actually sleep all night and dance during the day, when their predators, the owls, can’t see them.

So when you see a shooting star, remember: a hungry owl is chasing after it.


This story is based on a title suggested by @facelesscog.

The Pony and the Pea

Petunia and all the other ponies were excited for the royal parade.

In the morning, they were each given a pork chop and a pea. They devoured their delicious pork chops, all except Petunia. “Pork makes me bloaty,” said Petunia, and ate her pea.

The Princess chose to ride Petunia.


This story is dedicated to Mr. Denoncour’s 7th Grade class, which also provided the title as inspiration.
