The Annual Bloggers Bash Writing Competition 2018

As I’ll be attending my first Annual Bloggers Bash in May this year I thought I’d give the writing competition a go too.

As there’s another exciting event happening on the same day as the Bash, the theme of the writing competition is ‘Royalty’ and there’s a maximum of 300 words per entry.

So here’s my first EVER, flash fiction short story competition entry…The Royal House

I love to see Mr Jenson undress, don’t you Susie?” Susie giggled and was about to answer Annie, but stopped when she noticed a tall figure enter the kitchen.

Annie busied herself putting together Her Majesty’s breakfast tray as Mr Jenson, the Head Butler said sternly, “Stop your gossiping Annie, you know how it always gets you into trouble.” Annie smiled, “Sorry Mr Jenson, I was just wondering, you know, the new Princess…” Annie paused as Mr Jenson sat down at the large wooden kitchen table, then continued, “well, do you think she knows or will The Prince tell her after the wedding?” Mr Jenson sighed, ”What are you talking about Annie?”
Annie was excited, “You know sir, The Secret of The House, you know,” she watched as Mr Jenson slowly bent over the table to remove his first contact lens.  Annie stared, smiled and then continued, “she’ll be shocked won’t she sir?” Annie was still staring at Mr Jenson as he replied, “Annie, you know you shouldn’t be speaking of this” he blinked a few times, “she’ll be told and she’ll have to accept it, just like all the others.”  He slowly bent again to remove the second contact lens.

Annie picked up the breakfast tray while watching Mr Jenson as he began to peel his white gloves off slowly one finger at a time, “Well I wish I was a fly on the wall when…” Annie was cut off in mid sentence, “Annie please,” Mr Jenson’s first glove finally allowed his long reptilian fingers to uncurl, flex and stretch out.

Susie, Annie and Mr Jenson all smiled, “Now run along Annie, you know Her Majesty needs her breakfast before getting ‘dressed’ for the day.” He winked at her with his now expanded, glistening, orange and black fiery eye.

        1. Yes just checked again you have to post. I have read one other, but that’s all thought maybe I’ve missed some? 😊

          1. Yes I’m looking forward to the bash, I know you can’t be there but like we said before maybe try to meet up another time 😊

  1. That made me snort a little indecorously …. loved it – bon courage with the competition and enjoy the bash. I’ll be far to far away on the day so can’t consider it this year x

    1. A snort??! Oh I like that will take as a compliment 😃 thanks & it’s a shame you can’t make it, maybe next year? 😊xx

      1. Possibly …. this year is very complicated travel-wise but I am hoping that by the end of the year I will be able to put some stakes in the ground. The sooner they release the 2019 date the better for me – I would absolutely love to attend. A snort is my highest praise – honestly!

        1. Oh well good luck this year I’m sure it will fly 😊 it would be nice to meet up. Thanks again for the snort 😃
