This is my story this week for Friday Fictioneers. It’s a weekly flash fiction challenge to tell a story in 100 words that follows the picture prompt for the week. It’s hosted by the gracious and talented Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. This week the photo was supplied by Sandra Crook. Thanks Sandra.

The builder looked at the plans and frowned. The architect looked confident.

“Listen Mr. ah…”

“Wolfe, Mr. A. Wolfe. What seems to be the problem?”

“I”ve been building for years and I can’t see how in the world a house made of straw is go’in ta hold up to the weather in this part of the world. It’s just not practical. Never pass inspection.”

“Not to worry. This is an entirely new design and the client is perfectly happy to have it built just this way.”

“What’s the guy’s name now?”

“It’s Mr. Pigg, Littleton Pigg.”

“I’ve gotta meet this guy.”

    • Thanks Rochelle for reading my story and commenting. I’m glad you liked it. I had a lot of fun writing it. I was thinking too that the subject of hay or straw reminded several of us about favorite fairy tales and nursery rhymes. There was probably a lot of hay and straw around when those stories were first told.


    • Thanks for reading my story and commenting on it, Lisa. I glad you enjoyed reading it. I corrected that typo. Thanks for pointing it out to me. I don’t know how I could have read that over and missed it. I’m just surprised that someone didn’t mention it before.


  1. A couple of those Piggs, you can’t teach them anything. As for Mr. Wolfe, you’d think he’d recall what happened the last time he tangled with the Pigg Brothers. Cute story.


    • Thanks for reading and commenting on my story, VB. I’m glad you enjoyed it. It’s a good thing the Piggs have at least one intelligent brother. As for Mr. Wolfe, I doubt he’ll ever give up as he’s that type of character.


    • Thanks for reading my story and commenting on it, Alistair. I’m glad you liked it. Yes. Mr. Wolfe is a cunning guy alright. He’s always on the lookout for his next victim. He realized Mr. Pigg wasn’t the sharpest pencil in the box.
