The Moralistic Tale of Quentin Farqui? By CpSingleton © 2016

Quentin Farquis was a huge man, who liked to parade around his estate in purple velvet boots. He would do this everyday at two o’clock of the noon time. No matter the weather.

When pressed he would say that it was to welcome the Wisps, before stomping on his way.

The trouble with that statement was that nobody born later than the seventies knew what a Wisp actually was.  

Even if folk were around to see their popularity flourish, there was a distinct possibility that most of that generation believed that the Wisp was a made up concept, a figment of a sixties imagination, or a plain lie.

Not Quentin.

He believed, especially after his ill-conceived flurry into paper eating, that Wisps were as real as biscuits and that he was chosen to make sure the earthbound spirit was happy and content.

The Wisps, however, although very real indeed, had made a packet with the show documenting them and had relocated to Scunthorpe.

If there’s a moral to this tale, and I’m sure there must just be, then I’ll be slapped with cream horn if I’m party to it.

As for Quentin, he’s happy in his thoughts and gets lots of exercise, which keeps his cholesterol down, so who’s he harming?

Yours truly,

Abagham Jinxster. Esq.

About Chris42

I am a liar! A maker-uper of stories! If this was the 16 (c) I'd be burned as a witch. Fank goodness it is not, eh?! I have four children: two wonderful girls, a fantastic lad and Leeds United. I have no strict genre. I write children's poetry and stories, to edgy, stronger themes. Up until now I have stored them for my own and my family's viewing. Last year i thought bugger it and starred in several short films. One, Playground, which is on the BBC Film Network, used the monologue that I wrote for the audition. You should've seen the face of the receptionist, of the Manchester hotel, where the audition was being held, as I turned up dressed as the psychopath, Gordon. It got the desired effect! I then moved up to Cumbria and wrote and appeared in several live performances on stage. 2012. A local artist, Kayleigh Richardson, commissioned me to write a poem for her to paint a representation. I sent her, The Rise of the Robot Monkey Army. Kayleigh painted a fantastic piece that blew my mind! From that we are collaborating on the Jacob Bear series of stories. Oh and Two's Company is to published, along with seventeen other Sci Fi short stories as part of a collection. Not a bad start to the, so called, last year of the Earth. Now is the time to show the rest of you. I take my themes wherever i see them, whether in reality or dream-world. I hope you enjoy. If not tell me why. If so tell me why. Many thanks and be safe. So far I have published: Jacob Bear's first Christmas,https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007GK872A (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007GK872A (USA) Jacob Bear Goes to School https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007JD3OKY (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007JD3OKY (USA Jacob's First Words https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007VZWPSC (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007VZWPSC (USA) Space Here https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007H96M90 (UK) &http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007H96M90#reader_B007H96M90 The Rise of the Sponge Cake Moon https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007WWZ16M (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007WWZ16M (USA) © Madstoffa, 2012.
