Marmalade the unicorn galloped gleefully through the rolling hills of Summerberry Glen.
On the next hill over, he spied another member of his herd grazing. It was that gloomy gus, Greyflicker.
“Hello, Greyflicker!” called Marmalade.
Greyflicker swished her tail and snorted. “Go away.”
Cantering over, Marmalade winneyed his delight. “I know when you say, ‘Go away,’ you just mean, ‘I’m lonely!’”
Looking up from her meal of fresh antelope, Greyflicker glared at the gleaming Marmalade. “Go greet a virgin. I’m fine by myself.”
“Okay!” Marmalade trotted away in search of another friend. Maybe UNICODE-BOT would like to play.
Today’s story has two inspirations: i09‘s Concept Art Writing Prompt, and a drabble that Rachael wrote last night about a robot who tries to befriend real unicorns. The former gave me the seed of an evil unicorn. The latter gave me the idea to make it a silly story about friends who are just a little bit different. Definitely check out those links for some more fun, and let me know what you think in the comments!
