:iconkameratte: The ant in 100 words
From her leaf the ladybug observed the anthill. An ant moving in his pace, found the way blocked by an orange, left to rot. The ant laid away his load and tried to shove the annoying orange away.
"Just walk around!" the ladybug laughed.
"I am a warrior, proud and strong. This enemy will bow to my will!" the ant shouted back.
With more strength it shoved the obstacle and the orange moved forwards. And it rolled back again, squishing the ant.
"What use was your strength fair warrior, while you lacked the brain to use it?" mocked the ladybug.
Danny sneaked out of his family's house. He knew, his parents didn't like it, when he showed himself outside although they lived at a secluded farm. Maybe they were just jealous. They had no wings like him. He stood on the porch and looked at the blinking stars. They seemed to wink encouraging to him. He closed his eyes, took a deep breath of the fresh air and spread his wings. With a few strong beats he rose into the sky. He just loved to feel the air in his face and to hear the sound of his feathers when he flew.
Yet he was careful. A few circles above the farm were the only thing he allowed himself. He never came close to the dim lights at the horizon and avoided the street in the east as well.
The only thing which escaped his attention was a small campsite in the wood. The campers had their eyes on the full moon and they not only saw the unusual winged figure in the sky, they also had a camera and the presence of mind to use it.
During the following days the video was upl

The 100-word story of a small ant's trials...

:iconskysoul25: 100 word story contest
The Orange Bowel was on the left side of the Sofa. Paul Adam Wexler was trapped inside as his wife, Brianne approach the bowl. Looming over him she spotted him and began to attack him. At a quick pace Paul ran from his giant wife trying to get her attention, but she just kept seeing a spider in a bow. She ran after it and destroyed most of the house, until Paul was trapped behind a trash can and his wife’s shoe. She picked him up and threw him away. Paul Screamed and then he awoke from the surrealist nightmare.
UoyevolI an experiment in loveIntelligent Designs of my Goddess
Lavender lips that matched her eyes.
Olive skin that glistened in the sun, A Way that blossomed into a breath taking figure.
Voice as angelic as sky, a true goddess voice of every principal.
Ever loving, and ever carefree.
Young of Soul, mind and body.
Occupy my Heart in its full meaning.
United and Untitled as you are my Universe.

A strange and surreal series of events in 100 words - is it real, or just a dream...?

“NO! You have to put the orange bow over there, next to the purple ones!” a woman in a black trench coat yelled at a red headed girl in glasses on top of a ladder.
“I can’t reach it! It’s too far to the left!” the redhead yelled back. The trench coated woman responded by kicking the ladder, causing the girl to fall into a barrel of white paint.
“We have to get this ready for the party! It’s only a few hours away, so pick up the pace!” she responded before walking away.
That’s life.

It was a sunny Saturday morning in Beverly Hills. Walking down the sidewalk, the Fashion Police consisting of Tyler Breeze and Fandango were roaming the streets looking for fashion felonies.
“Ah Beverly Hills. It sure is beautiful, isn’t it Deputy Dango?” Tyler asked, taking note of all the malls sporting some very interesting fashions that he had never seen before.
“Breeze, you said we were in Beverly Hills, and yet I don’t see any hills,” Fandango said, looking around for a hill.
“Dango, Beverly Hills is just a name,” Breeze explained, looking at a woman wearing a polka dot dress. He seriously considered writing her a ticket if it wasn’t for the great color pallet.
“I’m still seeing a hill before we leave,” Fandango mumbled before springing his head up, hearing an argument. “Breeze, do you hear that?” Fandango asked, prompting Breeze to put a hand to his ear
