The Cerulean Blossom of Death

Pudge mentally reminded himself of the first two Rules of Thievery. Never steal anything FROM a wizard and Never steal anything FOR a wizard. Was there a Rule: Never steal something called the Cerulean Blossom of Death?

The payoff was irresistably high. The mage told him to find a flower with a fibrous stem and chromatic, hastate leaves. The flower would have shimmering argent and cerulean-tinted petals.

Although Pudge didn't know what most of those words meant, how hard could it be to locate one flower in an enchanted greenhouse? He was about to find out.

  2. Thank you. It has taken me a LOT of practice to get to where I am with flash fiction. I still have a LONG way to go.
