Happy Lunar New Year! This flash fiction story was inspired by the Year of the Rooster. Hope you enjoy! 🐓


There were once 8 roosters painted on 8 posters.

“Why is everyone staring at us?” said Rooster #1.

“I have no idea,” said Rooster #2.

“Ow!” said Rooster #3. He had been poked by a little girl.

“I think it’s the New Year,” said Rooster #4.

“The New Year passed 28 days ago,” said Rooster #5.

“The Lunar New Year,” said Rooster #6.

“It’s the Year of the Rooster,” said Rooster #7. He knew everything.

“We’re kings!” said Rooster #8. He knew nothing.

 

“No. We’re just roosters who were painted on a bunch of posters,” said Rooster #6.

He was the realist of the group.
