Flass 55 -Raven-& Quilly

With a nod to Raven and Quilly
( This week's Raven's words were horrible as usual)

Every week a nice lady named Raven gives us fifteen words and phrases to use in a story. Here we try to use those words and phrases in a flash 55.This week's words are: albino, trench, marble, assistant, Indian, What's that supposed to mean?, sound first principles, the key thing, moat, curtain, under the surface, doomed, grand design, temple, aspirin

Based on sound first principles he asked “What's that supposed to mean?”
His albino, assistant, Indian replied “ The key thing is to find the grand design under the surface of the marble temple moat which is just a trench.
Then I’m doomed never to find the curtain of pure gold, he said.
Taking a large aspirin.

And Now for something completely different. A flash 55 quivel. Something that looks like a poem, uses at least three of Quilly’s words and has five words to a line for eleven lines. Click on the special words for definitions.

A rubefacient patch on face
Is really not a disgrace
Divagations are allowed you know
They help the dialogue grow
Senticous as they might seem
Still they advance the theme
Imperfection has a new place
And not in outer space
Phlyarologist I am surely not
I know what he wrought
This is a happy spot.
