Now the story continues…


The snowfall had finally stopped.

We walked through the icy white ground, following the path shown in the map. It was one of the only three maps in existence that showed the location of Log Town’s treasure. It was highly unlikely that any of the other two possessors of the maps were present around us. However, after spotting the ducks, I realized I had spoken too soon. These were no ordinary ducks, these were guard ducks. It did not take a genius to know what they were guarding. If only we can go around th….

Flash Fiction: Treasure Hunter

Our quest had brought us to Logs Town.

The inane promise of exquisite, undiscovered treasures brought many hunters to this town. Nobody had managed to find the location of the legendary mine. Without even a silhouette of a map available, it was a foolhardy quest for most people. We were not most people. The heavy snowfall had been timely.

It eradicated all chances of intrusion…

Flash Fiction: My Treasure

This is mine, all mine.

The gold coins, glowing stones, studded goblets, and all the priceless paraphernalia, every bit of it is mine. They dazzle gloriously all around me. The bits and bones lying among my treasures bother me. They diminish the glory of my place. However, it was required.
Those puny intruders: The bold humans, the headstrong dwarfs and vile goblins, do not deserve to gaze upon my treasures, let alone touch them. Yet, they had the audacity to try and steal them. They were punished.

Not fit for a dragon’s meal, but my treasure satiates my hunger…

Flash Fiction: Treasure Hunter

Ah! Here comes master, again.

He comes over to my bowl only on two occasions. First, when its my feeding time, and second, when he gets bored with his work. I guess he likes watching me swim around like an idiot. I bet it makes him feel superior, and all high and mighty. See, there he goes, tapping on the bowl, assuming that the tapping wakes me up. Oh yes! I need to play treasure hunter again. I fly into the ship, search for the treasure and come out, every single time.

I guess he still believes that a goldfish’s memory is quite short lived. After all, that is the popular public opinion, isn’t it?

Flash Fiction: Treasures

Old man Jerry Shaw looked at all the children, who had shuffled into his study. He knew the little darlings wanted to listen to another story of his nautical exploits.

“Gather around, children. These are the many treasures of the sea I found on my many expeditions.”

Jerry was pleased at the awe struck whoas and ooos he received. Little Sammy tugged at the old man’s sleeve.

“These are so cool, grandpa Shaw. But, which is is your favorite treasure that you found in the sea?”

Jerry smiled.

” The greatest, enigmatic treasure I found in the sea, is Grandma Shaw.”
