Gnome Help (flash fiction)



Gnome Help


I knew I wouldn’t be getting out of bed today since I still had a temperature. The gnome appeared holding onto a tray with a bowl of thick vegetable soup. I sat up.

“I brought you some soup, since you’ve eaten little today.” The gnome put the tray on my lap, and also placed a hot cup of tea by my bed.

“Thanks you’re a great help.” I replied.

“No problem. You need to rest and get that fever down!”

The gnome sat down beside me and began reading aloud. Life was so much better with my gnome helper.

This was written with the prompt gnome provided by the Carrot Ranch December 12 Flash Fiction Challenge.

I guess this story was more like wishful thinking since I’ve been bedridden this week. It would be nice to be brought food and drinks…


Please support this blog 🙂


Apparently this is a zombie gnome.

  1. I suck at super short fiction like this (but you seem like a professional)! 😂 If you’re looking for longer short stories, and you’re interested in South Africa (where the new Miss Universe hails from), then you’ll love my short stories! Please take a read and let me know what you think? 😊🙏
