Esmeralda and Edward


The Slightly eccentric A to Z blogging adventure of unknown and rather unpopular Modern fairy tales
2013


E Esmeralda and Edward


Esmeralda was an ENCHANTED electric eel who lived in the Emperors Elaborately enamelled pond encrusted with emeralds (the pond not the eel). But one day Edward the Egret landed and said I spy with my little Eye  . . . . . . . DINNER

And ate Esmeralda the ENCHANTED ELECTRIC eel all up  

The End . . . . . . .

AH DAMN . . . . . that was a bit short, which strangely is exactly what Edward the Egret said after eating Esmeralda.

  1. Ohh, I like this approach. I did fairy tale studies in college so the rest are sure to interest me, bookmarking for certain!

    1. I had to do electronics and mechanics at college so fairy tales were not my strong point, well then nether were electronics and mechanics or as it turned out loads of other stuff. But luckily over the many years since I have discovered I am very skilled at messing about and making cardboard sculpture, and these days writing rubbish although I still cant spell or type.

      I hope my intrepid journey to Z does not disappoint you.....

    1. It was a very short tale today, it was not the original plan but somehow it seemed like the perfect way to end it. Sort of before it all got going.

      Luckily no one is eaten tomorrow but I will warn all that G involves the eating of the entire cast, sort of.... Such is the way of Fairy Tales.

  5. LOL I love that you're writing these little stories as your theme for the A to Z challenge and I especially adore the illustrations you've done to go with them. Awesome.

    2. If I did my math correctly, I think you averaged 1.8636 e's per E word, which smashed aLL together gives us a new E word: espereword

    3. I am pleased with that, I think this must mean all is going to plan.

  8. The lil man is a bit bummed that Mr E got to use the word 'E-larious', before he did.

    Very short but sweet, as was Esmeralda. :)

    1. Tell the Lil man that Mr ESB is a very clever man, and if they both thought of the same word then the Lil man is very clever. A very useful asset when you are considering taking over the world.

      And of course Mr ESB is still the only American member of RATs, in fact at present there are still just the five members.

      As for Esmeralda like her name sake Esmeralda who was eaten by the goat and returned unharmed (sort of) and slightly bionic, one should never say die.... As Vera Lynn once sung "Eel eat again don't know where don't know when" HAH HAHHAH HAHh ahh ah hahahh ha hah hahah hahah ha hahah hahaha

    3. But being an E man I have tEndEnc-eeee to think and sEE e's with ease.

    4. WHAT?!?!? We are taking over the world? (So now I am having Pinky and The Brain thoughts -MOIP- switching my voice back and forth between the two mouse characters - NARF!!! - )

    5. You are OK Mr ESB it is Master Lil man who is planning to take over the world. He is still quite young and not only has to deal with the normal everyday issues involved with taking over the world. But has the added problems of being sent to his room by his mum (Miss Lily), not ideal when working on a master plan for world domination.....

      I had to think for a few seconds about the ease of your E comment but my brain did then work it all out. I am not a natural user of E words.

  11. Well, how impolite of Edward the Egret; fancy landing in someone else's home and devouring them!

    Really enjoying your A-Z theme by the way :)

    1. Sadly it was not quite enchanted enough to avoid being eaten. Nature can be very cruel.
