100 Words

Here is an oldy from the files. It was written for a 100 word short story writing exercise / competition.

Mortimer was a monocle wearing crab of renowned intelligence. Creatures from across the ocean sought out his wisdom. He taught sharks haiku, whales how to dress like a mod, giant squids interpretive dance and conducted a dolphin choir in a rendition of R.Kelly’s urban opera ‘Trapped in the Closet’. However, he felt unfulfilled. He felt a need to journey to the world of humans to test himself. Gibble, a starfish who enjoyed Connect 4, begged him to stay but failed in his pleas. Mortimer was eventually eaten by fluent dutch speaker and Saved By the Bell star Mark-Paul Gosselaar.

I think I won.

Look out tomorrow night. Rhodri's R-Themed Coach Party. I think R.Kelly may have finally escaped from that closet.
