Paying Tuition Fees – Mondays Finish The Story

Paying Tuition Fees

When I rented the room, I did not think it would be this one! Worse, the one window looked out onto this tiny outhouse, fit only for dwarves. I shouldn’t complain. I could barely afford much rent with the crushing tuition fees at MIT. Luckily, the cottage had its own bathroom. It was months before I saw a tiny man dressed all in green standing beside the outhouse. He fit the size of it perfectly. Curious, I confronted him.

“Me pot o’ gold is safe? Ye never entered?” he wheezed.

“It’s too small for me.”

He began talking, and talking, and talking some more. I listened patiently. Two hours later, he said, “Ye seem a fine lad. Let me show ye somethin’.”

He walked, I crawled, inside the outhouse.

Minutes passed outside, but seven years inside, before I crawled back out in dragon-hide armor. “I never realized it was so easy,” I said.

“Aye,” said the leprechaun. “Turning lead into gold is nuthin’!”
Each monday, it’s time to finish the story. This week the start was, “When I rented the room, I did not think it would be this one!” Barbara’s great pic above was the media prompt. Look here for more stories based upon the prompts:

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.

  2. I would definitely pay for my college like that if I could, especially if I could get a set of dragon-hide armor to go with it. 🙂

    Unfortunately, there isn’t that much lead in outhouses either. 🙂

    You took the prompt and did a twista-rooney on it 🙂 LOL it is nothing like the outhouse we had when I was a kid. The only surprise you got was if you happened to be in there when the “toilet man” came around to change the pan twice a week. Scary; very scary 😮
