A Bedtime Story

by on August 23, 2013

This weekend’s Trifecta prompt asked us to do a children’s bedtime story in 33 words. I don’t have children myself, but I would like to someday, and if I did this is how I imagine my bedtime stories might go.

“Once upon a time….”


“Right. Cap’n Bluebeard kidnapped Princess Emilia-”

“No, spaceships!”

“And then he teleported her to-”

“No, werewolves!”

“Bill the Werewolf saved her, and they lived happily ever after.”

    Fuck yeah what’s a bedtime story without pirates, science fiction, and werewolves??? Love it.

    • What indeed? I remember my parents reading Little House on the Prairie to me as a child. If ever a story needed pirates and werewolves…

  3. Loved the short bedtime story.

  4. Bedtime stories with ADD…those are the creative ones 🙂

  5. I love the back and forth. Cute story! 🙂

  6. ha, you pretty much nailed it for not having kids! 🙂

  7. *hahaha* My two boys would *love* this story!

  8. I like a happy ending, too. This was cute!

  9. Ha, are you sure you don’t have kids? Seriously, you nailed it. One of my kid’s favorites when he was a little was an alien/robot/tree spirit hybrid that grew out of an acorn 😉

  10. Yay! I loved it as well. 🙂

  11. I love the happily ever afters. 🙂 Nice story.

  13. Ha! Yep. That’s about it, all right. 🙂

  14. Hahaha. Good one! I could hear the voice of the child, making special requests. 🙂

  15. Love it! You can come tell bedtime stories to my son anytime. 🙂

  16. Such a quick story-teller – a wonderful imagination needed to keep up with those kids.

  17. Thinking on your feet is key when you’re in the role of storyteller. Thanks for linking up!
