He's Alive.

It’s a very merry Christmas from me and my festive happy house guest, and the last of this year’s The Hemingway Day flash fiction…

He’s alive.




Their bodies recoiled, their eyes bulging.


Thanks to the Daily Post for the photo prompt “yellow”, which in my view, is just gold with less regal dripping.

    He’s very grumpy for a Christmas Gorilla. Does he have a name?

      Slightly less creepy than a smiling gorilla though… Everyone always asks when they come to visit, I am yet to give him one, any suggestions?

    Looks like the gorilla version of the Grinch! πŸ™‚

      That’s a good point, he does indeed. Hopefully there will be no Christmas stealing…

      Haha. I thought that sparkly gold hat was enough of a present… perhaps not. Noted for next year :-S
