What’s the Story? (flash fiction)

What’s the Story?

“So what’s the story about then?”

“It’s about the miser Ebenezer Scrooge who is visited by three Christmas ghosts during Christmas morning to make him change his ways.”

“Three Christmas goats?”

“No, ghosts.”

“It would be more interesting with goats.”

“I don’t think so.”

“Did you know goats are good climbers, have four stomachs, and have rectangular shaped pupils that allow them to see 340 degrees around them?”

“What is this: goat fun facts day?”

“Imagine the Goat of Christmas Past being the cutest littlest Christmas goat.”

“The Goat of Christmas Past? You do know the story don’t you?”

Joanne Fisher

This was written with the prompt about the littlest Christmas goat provided by the Carrot Ranch December 2 Flash Fiction Challenge.

I’ve been avoiding this one as I wasn’t so sure about the prompt. That said, I think I made a decent stab at it.
