Have Your Character Complete a Satisfying Task

Bosomella stood back and critically examined the corset and bosomblossomer in its entirety. Each stitch was straight, every tiny hook was anchored properly, the whale bone ribs were strong enough to crush the breath from the king’s mother-in-law, and the intricate embroidery was impeccable. “Rats”, she mumbled to herself. There was nothing left to do. No sane work with which to occupy her time.

The beige undergarment fairy turned with a huff to the semi-circle of chattering squirrels that scratched at the stone floor behind her. “Alright than. I want three shoes from each of you before the sun sets upon this day or I’ll take it out of your ear fur. And no duplicates. Off  with you my puffy minions, ravage the shoes of the wealthy, the ingenious, the poor, the oppressed, and the fashionably irreparable. I MUST HAVE FOOT WARE!”

She glared at them and the whole collection of tree-going rodents scattered. Squirrels, you can’t live with them…and…you can’t live with them. Silly little fuzzballs. At least they were happy.


I promise you a crazed animal, a concussion, and a kiss in every single book...you're welcome!

    Good idea! Actually, I need a “tidiness fairy”. The actual cleaning is no problem for me, it’s dealing with the clutter and finding a place for the stuff or making the decision to (heaven forbid) throw it out, that is so hard for me.

    Could be worse. I have my health and personality, what more could I want :0)!????

    Love to you.
