With a grunt the old gnome motioned for Johnny to put more wood on the fire.
“Yes sir.” Johnny quickly went about the task.
Despite the stories told by his friends, of gnomes eating children or turning them into toads, the gnomes had treated Johnny well.
But Johnny wanted to go home and there seemed no escape.
Within seconds of being captured by the gardener’s hoe Johnny slipped loose and ran for the door but it was gone. The door at the top of the grassy stairs was gone. There was no way home.
On December 27, 2014 (part 1) of The Evil Garden Gnome was shared on my blog. Several people suggested I extend the story. When I saw today’s photo prompt on Friday Fictioneers I couldn’t help but see Johnny’s story continue!
I still want more, Tree! 😉
And that makes me smile Helen! Hopefully more will follow 🙂
Can’t wait for the next one!!
Poor Johnny. This is intriguing, will he ever escape?
I guess you’ll have to stick around to find out 😉 (thanks for your comment!)
…and then they had him for their supper!
That might be what the fire is for Keith!
Thanks for commenting.
Oh no! We must see it through until Johnny gets home!
I’m sure Johnny would agree!
Thank you for commenting.
uh-oh … this has all the feel of a recurring nightmare! … must . wake . up!!
Wonderful story! Love this little forest nook. .. Looks like a great place for inspiration.
Thank you! It does look like a peaceful place
Oh.. I’m afraid that Johnny will be Saturday’s roast.
I think you might be right!
I agree with Helen- MORE!
🙂 Thanks Sue!
Really captures your attention. Good story writing…don’t make us wait another three months for the next one! 🙂
Thank you! I will try to figure out Johnny’s next move sooner….rather than later 🙂
