Friday Fictioneers: Newberry’s Ambition


Welcome Dear Readers to this week’s Friday Fictioneer 100-word story, picture prompt.  I’m mighty glad to be participating this week, having had to sit out last week’s fun due to shoelacing difficulties.   As always, thank you to our hostess, Rochelle, at Rochelle Wisoff-Fields-Addicted to Purple.

Newberry’s Ambition

Plastic men have ambitions too.  Newberry’s ambition was flight.

Newberry was originally meant to be an angel, but careless removal from his mold snapped off his wings.

So, when no one was looking, Newberry tried to achieve flight by flapping his arms.  One day his arms came unhinged, slipped to the floor through the dark-blue sleeves of his casual, button-down cardigan and collided with a pair of four-inch heels — launching the occupant therein airborn until she finally came to rest on the makeup counter two isles over.

Newberry had achieved flight!

Armless ergo handless, Newberry gave himself a mental thumbs up.

Until next time . . . I love you

  1. Cute story. I like your attention to the clothing of the store mannequins. I just have to ask you to fix a typo – “blue sleeves of his casual, button-down cardigan and collided with a pair four-inch” You need an ‘of’ before the four-inch heels! Then all will be perfect.

  2. Looks like Newberry’s lucky to be communicating at all what with his head and upper torso on one step and his lower torso on another. Will the wonders of modern science never cease? Fun.

Please leave a comment. I need help finishing my sentences.
