Shorty #7 – The Glutinous King

June 3, 2010

A story of 100 words or less and written for the following prompt:

The Gluttinous King

There once was a King who loved cheesecake. He challenged everyone under his rule to bake him the biggest cheesecakes in the galaxy and bring them to him to eat.

They did, and he ate and ate and when he could eat no more, he held cheesecake in his cheeks like a chipmunk. Eventually, he fell off his royal throne and, with a final gasp of, “Cheeeeeeese…c…c…c…caaaaaake”, the insatiable King died.

The Queen was not altogether unhappy with the King’s death because, lost in his gluttony, he had divorced her and she lived happily ever after with her Royal Alimony.
