Sammiscribbles weekend writing prompt #245 An Exmoor tale of superstition and a gullible wife

Charlie Bates was happy with life

often going on Saturday night

to his local pub for a pint

then go home to his wife

making his way across the moor

but one day he was very late

his wife worried about his fate

till he came in through the door

claiming he’d been pixie led

with a smile his worried wife said

next time fool, here’s what you do

turn widdershins, they can’t bother you.

  1. Well there you go. Make left turns to keep safe from the wee ones. 🙂 Nicely done.

  2. As someone often pixie-led when hunting fungi (for the camera) I appreciate the problems induced by those pesky pixies
