Another drabble for Friday flash! This one is inspired by this picture from wiki commons:
She watched a scaled monkey-like creature snag an orange fruit. Maybe it was safe to eat.
The creature crouched on the tree limb and bit into it. The sweet fruity scent wafted into her nose. Her stomach growled.
What the hell, she thought. The many-limbed tree was easy to climb. It was rough under her palms, rubbing her skin red. The creature watched her progress with beady eyes.
She reached for a fruit and the creature attacked. Claws dug into her arms.
She lost her grip and fell. Pain exploded in her head and she moaned. Stupid possessive scaly monkey.

I like the twisted and short ones. ^^ How’s your word count doing? *encouragement* I got up to about 6000 today so far, but my aim is 12000 because I will have to go away two weeks with no writing which is really scary…
4906 words so far total! Today wasn’t a good day. Only got about 900.
Oh, that is messed up Sonia. About as nasty and gnarly as I’ve seen a drabble or work of comparable length get in some time.
One typo, I think. First sentence – “creatures”? I think you mean “creature.”
nasty and gnarly in a good way?!! Thanks John!
“Stupid possessive scaly monkey.” Ha ha ha ha ha.
LOL, I enjoy your sense of humor 😉
That’ll teach her not to try pinching the stupid possessive scaly monkey’s food. 😀
I hate possessive scaly monkeys! He he. Great drabble, Sonia.
Ahh. The old “monkey wouldn’t share his stupid fruit” scenario…
Great job, and thanks – love the photo too!
Here’s my (late) posting for Friday Flash:
Well there’s a warning to stay about from the scaly monkey’s food! Tee-hee ^__^
Awwww monkeys are my all time fav. Hard to think of a scaly one – but the descriptions were great. Nice work
The downside of knowing food is safe, wonderful story, Robin
