DRABBLE CHALLENGE ~ BOTTLE

The drabble challenge is a weekly challenge , hosted by Aheila on her blog : thewriteaholicblog.wordpress.com

A reminder how it works : read the prompt and find your angle ; write a drabble ( 100 word story, give or take 5 words ) ; post a direct link to the drabble in your comments .

                                                           *          *          *          *          *                                    

Each bottle craved the coveted central position in the bar .

"I should be given first preference !" Mr. Scotch Whiskey silenced everyone .

"It doesn't really matter ," purred Madame Chardonnay ," as long as I'm kept away from direct sunlight ." Inwardly , she shuddered at the thought of being in close proximity to the loud , foul-mouthed Don Juan Tequila .

"What's the fuss ? I deserve it !" he drawled , winking at the hardened Sir Guinness stout . The tall , elegant Chardonnay peered down at his short , squat , stumpy frame .

Without warning , the pompous Monsieur Cognac , resplendent in a baccarrat crystal bottle , emerged from a red velvet box .

The fight was over .

    Definitely a piece that made me smile. I like how you drew characters from the bottles look and the alcohol within it.

      Thanks A ~~ I think that’s the connotation and general perception with regards to each type of alcohol mentioned ! 🙂
