in Freewriterslast month


The satellite burst into flames and started to free fall, then exploded in a shower of golden fireworks.

"I never thought I'd say this," she looked at Joey pointedly. "But, I think you're right."

"Sorry about the paint," he shrugged. "Judging by your reaction, I should've gone with the honey."

Honey... honey! Will you let him get away with that?

Jenny paled. The voice was right.

"Honey?" she hissed, wrenching her arm from Joey's grasp. "I trust you remember what happened last time you performed one of your pranks with honey."

Joey folded his arms and smirked.

"It wasn't really a prank--"

"Bees, Joey," Jenny interrupted. "BEES!"

"I know," he shrugged. "I slathered myself in it, remember? For fun."

"I was the one stung by the bees!"

Joey shrugged again.

"I was King of the Bees. They gave me more of their glorious honey and I ate it on oatmeal. It was delicious!"

"I wouldn't know, Joey. I was in hospital. Because I'm allergic. DEATHLY ALLERGIC!"

Jenny whipped around and prepared to stalk off in a huff, but the vegans were still staring at the scene.

"That's right!" she shouted, brandishing her pointer finger at the ginger maniac. "He eats animal products. Fuck, he probably ate the bloody bees!"

The group of vegans blinked simultaneously then, in perfect unison, they stepped forward.

"Bees and beef. Bees and beef. Bees and beef," they droned, approaching steadily.

"Quick Jen-Jen," Joey pushed her then sprinted past. "Run -- they might be vegans but they have cannibals for friends. I know from experience!"

Don't follow him, the voice sneered. He'll toboggan you down a cliff again.

"You are a very wise and wondrous voice," Jenny whispered. "But I think I know what to do."

Thank you for stopping by and having a read! 😃


I think Joey is safe enough. I doubt even cannibals or vegans would eat him!

It’s Wednesday so it must be me again with your prompt for today:

I think being captured by a cannibal and roasted over an open fire is probably the only way Jenny will be getting rid of him any time soon, haha! But we can't have that. We need Joey to cause mayhem.

Thanks for the prompt delivery! :D

I remember the toboggan!
What? What is she going to do?
I have to remember to look this up every day!
You've done it this time. Maybe she will do it this time.
But what?

Every second day at least, I'm being a bit slack and combining them into double or triple freewrites. :D

I'm not sure what she's going to do! But I do know it will involve radishes.

What an interesting series! ^_^ Happy weekend!
