A little 100 word story for Friday Fictioneers
Norman the naughty gnome lived in a magic garden where people came to drop coins in the fountain.
Each day he would hide and as people approached, pinch his nose, drop beneath the bubbles and steal the coins as they floated down.
The Gnome Major heard of Norman’s naughtiness and appeared one day.
Norman dived. Pointing a bony finger at the water the Major wiggled it. Norman started spinning, then with a glug disappeared down the drain hole.
Suddenly the tumbling water turned gold and thousands of coins shot skyward then rained to the ground.
