Story a day: 3.26.16

Inspired by my insatiable hunger for the red bean ice cream fish at the Uwajimaya booth in the convention center.

My prize was not a princess but a fish.

I braved the moving mountains. I traversed the dumb hordes. I shoved past demons, dragons and dark mages.

And for my struggle, I earned yet another trial. My fish lay but feet away, but between her and I thronged a crowd of pushing, shoving beasts. I ducked and dodged my way through. A scythe swung at my face. I dove, rolled, popped back up to my feet.

I caught my breath at the edge of the fish tank containing my prize and gazed down at her waffle cone scales.
