Pink Perfection

Clara had died.

Clara, the “darling” of the tulip world, whose “Pink Perfection” won awards and worldwide accolades, was stolen from Nattie. Stolen, just like most of her flowers, just like most of her fame. Meanwhile, Nattie languished in her shadow hungry for success yet never finding it.

While plotting revenge, Nattie died of a stroke. When she returned to this world, could she finish? No! Not as a goat, and Clara had died anyway.

Nattie, the goat, stood before Clara’s grave decorated with “Pink Perfection” tulips.

Nattie bowed her head at the grave, and noted…these tulips are really tasty!

The Friday Fictioneers meets weekly to write 100 words based on a photo prompt. Rochelle Wisoff-Fields provides the photo prompt and the inspiration of our imagination. Anyone may join in on the creative explosion, so why don’t you? This week’s prompt may be found here:

About EagleAye

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.

    revenge never tasted so…sweet? tasty. hmmm.


  2. Revenge is a dish best served with edible flowers, I guess. I thought the “Pink Perfection” might be flowers but I certainly didn’t anticipate the rest. 🙂



  3. Will Nattie stop at nothing?


  4. Jan Brown says:

    The ending is very satisfying!

    Turns out revenge is sweet after all!

    If Nattie came back as a goat, what was Clare reincarnated into?


  6. Dear E.A.

    I’m glad I wasn’t drinking something when I read the last line. Fun story.

    Now that’s a neat take on the “revenge is sweet” phrase!

    Dear Eagle Eye,

    Oh, I thought the goat was going to do something else on the grave. Ah, well, my mind is showing. Great story.

    Sweet revenge. Sweet story.


  11. Penny L Howe says:

    Your cleverness is never ending, the twists and turns you contrive are always so darn clever and this one, of course highly amusing!
