When I saw the photo prompt I couldn’t for the life of me think what to do; to continue this self imposed ridiculous children’s characters of the past theme I seem to have got myself into.
What leapt out at me was the island in the background, separate from the mainland, easily reached but still detached. I thought about which characters I could maroon there and hey presto the folk who went to sea in a pea green boat appeared into my head.
Don’t ask me about the other stuff, as I have no idea where that comes from!
And its 100 words, on the nose!!
The reasons for the voyage of the Owl and Pussycat to the land where the Bong trees grew has finally been revealed after the bogus turkey vicar broke 40 years of silence from his death bed.
He uttered and then he died.
Quince, being the official fruit of Aphrodite and a powerful aphrodisiac, was growing on the Bong trees; the epic journey had been a cover up to harvest the valuable fruits.
Unfortunately quince addiction leads to an irrational fear of water and so the Owl and Pussycat cannot leave their self imposed Greed Stoked Quince Soaked Island exile.
