Who's Afaid of the Wolf?

It was warm as Little Red Riding Hood skipped through the woods on her way to visit grandma. She stopped for a minute, took off her cape and draped it over her basket. Just then, Mr Wolf came by. Fancying a tit-bit he too stopped, planning to devour the little girl.

'Good morning ,Mr Wolf,' said Little Red Riding Hood. Tossing back her pretty, blonde curls she took a step nearer Mr Wolf. 'Can I tempt you with some of my goodies?'

Mr Wolf could hardly believe his luck at coming across such a delectable little dish. He licked his lips with relish.

Little Red Riding Hood fluttered her long lashes. 'I bet you'd like to sink your teeth into a ripe young cherry.'

Mr Wolf gasped. Taken back by her precocious nature he became lost for words.

'How about some breast?' Little Red Riding Hood went on as she licked her lips. 'They're very small and white, but very tender.'

Mr Wolf was horrified.

Little Red Riding Hood widened her blue eyes. 'Surely, if I show you what I have under my cape you cannnot refuse?'

Mr Wolf looked at Little Red Riding Hood with disdain. Suddenly the thought of eating this unsavoury little thing left a bitter aftertaste. He politely made his excuses and left. It just wouldn't do for him to have that sort of a reputation. And what if she cried, 'Wolf?' He heaved a sigh of relief as the edge of the wood came into view and vowed to stay away from little girls no matter how delicious they looked.

That night Little Red Riding Hood told her grandma about her generous offer to Mr Wolf.

'Well, there's a silly fellow,' said grandma upon hearing the wolf's refusal. She eyed her pretty granddaughter and smiled. 'He surely doesn't know what he is missing.'

'He really doesn't,' Little Red Riding Hood said and she sat down to eat the Chicken Alexandra followed by cherry pie.

Teeheehee - my she is a clever little girl! Great fun, Julie.
(you've spellt afraid wrong)
I like the more serious moralistic side to this too. It can be read at several levels(and in so few words) You'll have to join the flash group when a place comes up.

Yes, I liked this also. Rude, but playful too. Nice to see the big bad wolf get his comeuppance for a change. Is allegorical the right word? It sounds right for this. Anyway I enjoyed it a lot!

Yes, a playful piece that could get itself in Playboy or a male magazine of some sort.

Have you tried sending it off?

Thnks for the comments everyone..glad you enjoyed reading.

Hi Hamburger..I never thought about sending it off..I've never read playboy myself so I don't know what kind of things they publish. Perhaps i should sneak in a reach to the top sheleves in WHSmith. Might just give it a go..nothing to lose (exception my reputation lol)

A delicious piece of flash. (although you might need to talk to Jubbly about subverting fairy tales)

Can I suggest:

'Fancying a tit-bit he too, stopped,'

Instead of:

'Fancying a tit-bit he too stopped,'

Nice n' funny piece of flash Jules.

I enjoyed the twist with the wolf being prudish.

Great stuff.
