Fox Breaking News…

“Turn that off Patty!”

“But why Evil Gerbs? You’re famous.”

“I’m not famous, I’m infamous.”

“Same difference.”

“Not to me. When I was a pup, do you think I wanted be The Notorious Evil Dr. Gerbil?

No, I wanted to be a star! I had talent you know, big dreams.”

“Well then,” Patty said, “Why don’t you enter the Valentine’s Day, Villains Got Talent Show?”

“I secretly hoped for a shot on that show. Imagine, ME, The Evil Dr. Gerbil a STAR!”

MEANWHILE BACK AT POLICE HEADQUARTERS…

“Wonder Weasel, any leads on Dr. Gerbil’s whereabouts?”

“No Commissioner Wallaby, not yet. But I have an idea, and I’m hoping I’m right.”

“What is it WW?”

“The Valentine Villains Got Talent show is tomorrow. I know that rodent would like nothing more than a shot at legitimate stardom.”

“Well, that’s it then, stake out the joint. This may be your chance to finally nab that lab rat once and for all.”

“I hope you’re right Commissioner.”

“For you’re sake Wonder Weasel, I hope you’re right!”

The Princess Frog

It’s time for Susanna Leonard Hill’s 3rd annual Valentiny writing contest. If you haven’t already done so, head here to read the rules, and some pretty amazing Valentiny entries.  I hope you enjoy my 213 word entry.

The Princess Frog

Frog hopped down to the pond. Tomorrow was Valentine’s Day, and he needed to collect lily flower Valentines. Across the pond he saw the most beautiful lily flower. Just as he was about to grab it, a hand came down.

“Hey!” said a girl, “That’s my lily flower!”

“You’re not even a frog,” said Frog, “Why do you want a lily flower?”

“I’m hoping to use it to attract the most handsome frog to kiss tomorrow, and turn him into my prince,” said the girl.

“That’s just a myth,” said Frog.

The next day at school Frog’s friends were missing. He hopped to the pond. His friends were getting kissed and turning into princes. He saw the girl from yesterday holding the wilted lily flower.
“What have you done to my friends?” Frog shouted.

The girl was crying.

“What’s the matter?”

“I kissed the frogs, but none of them turned into MY prince,” the girl cried.

Frog felt sad for her, and gently kissed her cheek.

POOF!

The girl turned into a lovely frog princess.

Frog said, “Wait here.”

He hopped to the other side of the pond, returning with the most beautiful lily flower.

“Would you be my Valentine?’

The Frog Princess smiled, and said, “Yes!”

Together they lived hoppily ever after.

Halloweensie 2017: The Evil Dr. Gerbil and the Halloween Heist

Hi All.  I’m so excited! Another year has passed, and once again it is time for Susanna Leonard Hill’s annual Halloweensie writing contest. You can find all the rules and regulations here.  If writing isn’t your thing, then please make sure to head here and read all the fabulous stories.  I am always blown away by all the wonderful, and creative entries.  It is amazing what writers can do with only 100 words. I have decided to revive my lovable (or not so lovable) Evil Dr. Gerbil for this Halloween special.  In case you don’t remember, The Evil Dr. Gerbil hasn’t been seen since his prison escape last Christmas. I hope you enjoy my entry.

The Evil Dr. Gerbil and the Halloween Heist


FOX NEWS ALERT:  Halloween Heist!

Halloween trick-or-treaters reported being held up for their candy corn cache last night. One group of children described the shadow of a rodent creeping up from behind demanding all of their candy corn.

Inspector Wallaby believes The Evil Dr. Gerbil, and his on-again, off-again girlfriend Patty Partridge, who is known to have a monstrous sweet tooth, are responsible.

Bits of feathers, and rodent droppings were found at the scene and have been sent to the DNA lab for further testing. Wonder Weasel is flying in to assist.

Stay tuned to Fox News for further updates…
