Flash Fiction Friday - Entrance to Faerie

            “It won’t work,” he said.
            “It’s too cold!” he said.
            “There’s no magic,” he said.
             “All you have to do,” said the instructor as patiently as he could, “Is step into the water.”
            “You don’t know what you’re doing,” he said.
            One little shove, thought the instructor. He pushed and the man fell into the water. But he didn’t disappear into Faerie. He thrashed as he went under again and again.
            A great, imposing figure rose from the water.
            “What makes you think we want him?”
            The instructor shrugged, watching the complainer struggle. “I guess the lake can have him.”


Today's Novel Idea Prompted by: "Fed up of hearing his constant whining, the training instructor walked behind him nonchalantly and shoved him in the water."

Bahahahaha. I don't know why the image of him going under again and again gets me, but it does. Nice job showing the whining. (I think it's funny that our characters has a similar complaint. Cold water must be the worst :D)

LOL! I guess the guy will have to learn to show a little more faith before Faerie will let him in. :P
