Flash Fiction: Scrambled by Author Debbie Manber Kupfer
“Mrs. Dumpty is just as klutzy as her husband. Why they can’t just stay off that wall it beats me.” The King sighed. He’d tried sending in his men and the horses again. Didn’t work though. One of these days he’d give up and just make a huge pan of scrambled egg.
But today wasn’t the day for that. Today was Valentine’s Day. So he’d call in Cupid.
“Can’t do it,” said Cupid. “Not my area.”
“Don’t care,” countered the King. “You owe me a favor. Remember that stray arrow last year?”
“Yeah, I remember. You’re never going to let me forget that, are you? I’ll see what I can do.”
“Cheers mate. If anyone can get the Dumptys back together I know it’s you.”
Cupid flew down the wall. The Dumptys lay on the floor groaning. It looked bad, real bad. He worked for three hours straight but in the end had to call the King back.
“I’m sorry your majesty.” He sighed. “Even I couldn’t bring them back together.”
