#FlashFriday #Fictioneers: Last Supper

I couldn’t resist having a little fun with this week’s photo prompt by Madison Woods. What else can you do with a photo of two moths visiting a McDonald’s?

If you’d like to see dozens of other creative tales that “took flight” from this photo, click here.


Last Supper


Larry-the-Luna-Moth landed next to his true love, Lulu. “Darlin’, we’ve had quite a week together, haven’t we?”

She took a long breath. “First I broke out of a dark, stringy prison. Then, avoided a myriad of predators. Little did I know, the real predator was you! You, a fellow actias luna, ravaged me over and over. Finally, pushing out those blasted eggs! I’m ready for that last supper you promised me. Some good, hot fries.”

Larry checked his biological clock, grateful they had but a few seconds left. “Silly Lulu. Don’t you know moths don’t eat?”

    I love the stories this week. Getting a feel for the personality and adventures moths undertake. Who’d have thought it! This made me smile, particularly when he checked his ‘biological clock’. My brain just showed me a moth with a wrist watch.

    Here’s mine, not as happy as the others I’m afraid.

    Lol. Ravished her over and over. That line really cracked me up. Great story.

    That was a Lulu of a story. Some might even call it a whopper (oops, wrong restaurant chain). You must have studied Entomology.

  4. Hmm, a nice story, with Lulu being ravished again and again, on the eve of their expiry. Mine is here: http://readinpleasure.wordpress.com/2012/05/25/fridayfictioneers-preying-mantis/

    I don’t think I’ll be able to look at moths in quite the same way after this week’s prompt. Nice one, liked it.

    Silly Rabbit, er, Lulu, tricks are for kids.

    Good one, Jan.

    I feel bad, this is like the third Moth inspired story I’ve seen, they are all so original and quirky. Yours is the best though because everyone gets hungry, and it’a all well deserved. I kind of wish I did a moth story, here’s mine: http://remakingme-atiyatownes.blogspot.com/2012/05/friday-flash-fiction-best-hubby-ever.html


  8. Hey Jan! I haven’t seen you here in ages, have I? Glad to have you back and with this delightfully cruel little shaggy moth story.
    Yours stil writing,
    And for those who have not dropped by yet, here I am:

    Oh cruel fate! Fun tale, Jan.

    After that wonderfully carnal week together, who wouldn’t be hungry, even for McDonalds. Here’s mine: http://postcardfiction.com/2012/05/25/despite-your-intentions/

    Hi Jan: Finally found you. What a delightful and different take on the prompt. I think this is the 3rd story using the name Luna…but fun to see you added a Lulu. Here’s mine:


  12. Madison Woods says:

    Hahaha, well, at least they get to bask in the afterglow a little while. Better than the fate of preying mantids, I guess! That was cute, Jan 🙂


  13. rochellewisoff says:

    A few seconds left…haha. Cute. I suppose the fries are a cut above wanting a cigarette after the event.


  14. Beth Carter says:

    Adorable story. Loved the names–Luna and Lulu. Moths don’t eat? I didn’t know that. I hope to get my blog either up and running this week (or switched over to WordPress). Hopefully, I can play next Friday!

    Now that was great! Perked me up!

    Somehow I missed this one. Clever and Cute. I didn’t know you were in Sacramento when you were 16.
