Seven pairs of eyes

The evil queen, certain the dwarves were away, mining on the other side of the mountain, passed the towering woodpile on her way to the door.

Seven pairs of eyes watched from behind the logs, flummoxed that she would be so brazen.

  1. Creepy and funny at once and would (does) make me wonder what happens next and how that tension would resolve.

  2. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
    That is a terrible queen
    And flummox is such a cute word especially used in the context of the seven dwarfsโš˜

    But couldn’t you find an evil king instead??๐Ÿ˜ฏ

      BTW, please feel free to call me ‘David’ because that is my first name. ‘ben’ just means ‘son of’ in Hebrew. My father’s name was ‘Alexander’, and I created this blog in his memory. I know my pen name is confusing… Sorry โฃ๏ธ
