April 26 – Flash Fiction  – A Fish Tale

Charli’s prompt this week:

April 26, 2018, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a fish tale. It can be about fishing from any angle, about those who fish, or what might be caught. Go where the prompt leads.

I’m sorry, but a silly take from me this week!

“Oh, he’s going to be so excited!”
“Fish will finally have his Chips with him!”
Voices filtered through the water, reaching Fish as he swam around in his little tank.
What on earth were they going on about? Why was he going to get excited? Who Chips?
Just then, the water rippled and he came face to face with Chips for the first time.
“Let me just get this straight,” he said, “this is MY tank, and-“
Chips opened her mouth into a coy O shape and let loose a flirtatious bubble stream…
“-I think I love you!”

    LOL! Too darn cute, Ritu. I was hoping for fish and chips from the vendor on the street. Man, that was the best ever. I miss England. LOL! ❤

    Fish is in deep trouble…or in imminent bliss. Chips knows how to handle the biggest fish in the pond! 😀

    Good one Ritu. I see the task was edited….on my viewing, it said ‘angel’ instead of ‘angle’, hence my silliness.
