The Masked Terror #carrotranch

This week’s #carrotranch prompt is

May 6, 2021, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story about party hens. Who are these chickens and why do they party? Go where the prompt leads!

‘Logan, you look dreadful. What’s happened?’

‘I thought it was time I went out. I caught a train.’

‘Was it packed?’

‘Not really. About ten others.’

‘Oh. Did they get too close?’

‘Not really.’

‘Didn’t they have masks?’

‘That was part of the problem. The masks.’

‘Didn’t they cover their faces?’

‘No, they hide everything.’

‘How can ten mask-wearing people on an otherwise empty train cause such distress?’

‘Morgan, it was a hen party. They wore Megan Markle masks. They said they wanted to read me their new children’s story. I couldn’t get away.’

‘You’d better lie down.’

About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published several books: a four book series following Harry Spittle as he grows from hapless student to hapless partner in a London law firm; four others in different genres; a book of poetry; four anthologies of short fiction; and a memoir of my mother. I have several more in the pipeline. I have been blogging regularly since 2014, on topic as diverse as: poetry based on famous poems; memories from my life; my garden; my dog; a whole variety of short fiction; my attempts at baking and food; travel and the consequent disasters; theatre, film and book reviews; and the occasional thought piece. Mostly it is whatever takes my fancy. I avoid politics, mostly, and religion, always. I don't mean to upset anyone but if I do, well, sorry and I suggest you go elsewhere. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.

    Really funny! I take it you are not a fan of Megan Markle? I’m not.

      I try to be indifferent to all the puffery and pontificating but it did seem egregious to go on some third rate hagiographic interview and throw around some mean comments. So not on my top five people to have for dinner, no…
