Finding​ a Prince

As she was sitting in a restaurant, she overheard a conversation between two women. “Find a rich prince with whom you can ride into the sunset and live happily ever after,” said the older one to the other.

She smiled as a snippet came before her eyes. She had found her prince in her mate; who she would give a lift to work everyday. Surely it was their lengthy conversations and his insect-chasing skills that gave them their happily ever after instead of anything else.


The picture prompt has been given by @any1mark66 at the Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers (FFfAW). The word prompts have been given by the WordPress Daily Post and Six Sentence Stories.

  2. These days, Prince Charming is more likely to show up in a beater car and need help with the payments.

  4. very cool.
    (liked your leaving it to the reader to decide who/what is the mate referred to*)

    * my preference is a puppy, as we once had a dog who specialized in hunting crickets. took great pride in her efforts.

    1. Hmmm maybe a dog could have done the job. But was thinking of someone more human

  6. Good thing that she found her prince in her mate but I’m curious as to what he is? He’s good at insect chasing. Great story! I’m just a little confused.

  7. I’m intrigued as to who the Prince is also. I thought at first it was human, and then (because of the photo) that it was a grass hopper. someone suggested puppy and that sounds the most logical with the name Prince and insect catching capabilities. Very good combination of prompts.

  8. She married an entomologist no doubt. 🙂 Perhaps she works along side of him.
