There’s so much to love about Fridays, but one of the things I love most is Madison Woods‘ Friday Fictioneer series. Her photo prompts stir my creativity and help me to step out of the comfort zone of my usual genres. This week’s prompt was just one more example of a photo that gave my flabby brain the workout it needed.

Tessa Toad stared at her beau frog with bulging eyes. “You broke my stool.”
“I didn’t mean to, my love.” Beau Frog’s nostrils twitched. “How can I make it up to you? Shall I bring you a dozen flies to tempt your pallet? Babysit the tads while you go lily pad hopping with the girls? Serenade you at sunset? Oh dear. I so fear you’ll love me less.”
The thought of a dozen flies made Tessa’s tongue uncurl. Beau sure knew the way to her heart. “Oh, bull, Frog! Though I may hate you more, I could never love you less.”
Note: I “borrowed” that last line from the movie War Horse. Best line in the movie!
