The Prince of Darkness is a gentleman

This is a 50-word story where E = Evil baffled! written for the ABC Wednesday meme that  is hosted by Mrs. Denise Nesbitt


As soon as Miss Jenkins saw the sweetshop door open, and heard from nowhere the wailing woman music, she knew it was trouble. That song always heralded a struggle with Evil.   

Lucifer, took off his glasses, stopped, and looked round cautiously, he’d only popped in for a quarter of humbugs

  1. Clever, clever.

  2. Evil! Very good. I had a hard time thinking of an e. I settled for
    'everyday' which is pretty generic... whoops!

  3. It is a struggle isnt't it to respond under a limited word count. I try to do that also but my limit is 150 words. I have one today for the letter E and I do one everyday on my Riff blog. Thank you for this post today.

  4. Excellent - and don't you have a pleasant speaking voice :-)

  5. I just loved this little story! Never saw the twist at the end coming. Nicely done 50 and E.

  6. On the evocative side, I might say. Welcome aboard to ABC Weds!

  7. As I am a good person the word "evil" never came into my mind, lol !

  8. Well done! Very creative take on the letter E.


Welcome and thanks for dropping in. I'll pop by yours by and by.

This blog was inspired by First 50 words where you freewrite from a single word prompt. I use random words or images to create flash fiction in formats ranging from twitter postcards to short short stories.
