Glenda Gloop, the Under the Sink Thing, rolled her one bulbous eye at Moribund the Shadow Thing. She flutter-lashed and his belly trembled.
“You’re looking very… erm… gloppish today, Glenda.”
She giggled a drain-water gurgle. Moribund fidgeted. His valentine was being ignored after all he’d gone through. He poked the box closer with a shadowy toe, hopeful.
To his horror, she yawned and began to snore. He deflated like a punctured tire and glared at the two dwarves.
“It wasn’t my fault!” Derp squealed. Herp fainted.
Exasperated, Moribund crammed his gift into her guzzawing mouth and swore off love forever.
The above is my entry for the 100-Word-Challenge. The prompt was “It wasn’t my fault.”

Poor Moribund. Maybe Glendale hadn’t seen it.
I am enjoying these installments very much.
I can’t wait for the next prompt. It’s going to be hard to wait for 2 weeks! I appreciate your reading and I’m glad you enjoyed it. Thank you!
Reblogged this on sppasm.

Deliciously grotesque, my mind is whirring thinking of what the gift was…eurgh!

very imaginative Jean 🙂 great read. kudos!
Thank you, Arjun. I’m glad you liked it and thanks for reading!
I didn’t understand it, but I see a ton of imagination here and comfort with your characters.
I appreciate this feedback. I’ve serialized my weekly 100-word stories and have also been trying to make them stand-alone stories. I felt I hadn’t done as good a job this time when I published this, and I should have listened to myself. You win some, you lose some, and you learn. Thank you for reading!
I am loveing these installments. Keep them up, they’re so creative and well written.
Thank you, Judee. I really appreciate you reading and your comments!
Another wonderful tale involving the great creatures you keep hidden under your sink.
Just shows what hard work this whole ‘love’ business is.
