Forging ahead with fictional endeavours: ~ Write a life on a page and hurry not to its grave; abhor not the coming age, for eternal is the next page. ~ Read what you will, I hope you will enjoy reading as much as I do writing.

boatToday’s second challenge prompt is borrowed from Sunday Photo Fiction. This piece is actually flash fiction but given I saw the prompt and could not stop thinking about a ‘Sailor Moon’ episode I saw when I was a preteen I’m no longer sure whether to categorize it as fan-fiction or flash fiction with a pop culture reference. Either way I tried to make it funny.

John braced himself as cruise ship rolled with the waves. Sure enough, Tamara pin-wheeled backwards into his arms. The impact drove an unladylike belch from her slight frame. Geh, alcohol breath. “’scuse.” Then she was off again, mojito in hand, making a bee-line for the stage. John hurried after her, cursing, not again.

Too late! Tamara had already snatched the mic from bemused entertainers, filling the room with her off-key, static-filled singing. “FightING EVIL ‘cup Moonlight, FINDing luuv ‘cup ‘aylight, EVER ‘running ‘cup eel fright, she ‘cup Sailor Spooon!” At this point John managed to wrestle the mic her grip, only to have her throw her arms around his neck, dragging him to the floor. “’Uxedooo ‘Ask!!!”

It was then an icy voice breathed in his ear, “I’m sorry, sir, but I’m going to have to ask you to escort the Lady back to her suit.” The chill crept straight to the base of his spine. He threw the drunkard over his shoulder and vowed to never take her drinking again.

  1. HAHAHA Soo funny. Love it

  2. Although I didn’t see Sailor Moon, your descriptions of this scene was very vivid! Very nice!

    • Thanks. Sailor moon does not actually make an appearance as such. It is actually an obscure reference to the episode in which she snuck aboard a couples cruise and spent far too much time mooning over Tuxedo Mask. A more obvious reference is the bastardised version of the theme song Tamara in murdering. Would you believe I actually never liked Sailor Moon from that? -_-

  3. He should have thrown her overboard!

  4. I think I was on a boat trip with her once… 🙂

  5. Hilarioius, Penswift. She wasn’t exactly the life of the party was she. Well done. 🙂 — Suzanne

    • Depends on how you treat it I guess. I’m the one at the party who dissolves into hysterical laughter while trying to film these embarrassing moments. 🙂 Thanks though ^_^
