Flash Fiction Fridays, #15

5 words picked by a random word generator, 100 words or fewer story.  We have:  parity, hammer, frost, stone, pebble. Please send in one of your own, due by midnight, Monday, New York time. Winner gets a critique of the first chapter of their WIP or poem.

     “Still on strike?”
     “We want parity!”
     “Like what?”
       “Better weapons for one thing. Look at you with your hammer!”
     “I need it. We have to fight frost giants, serpents, and giant wolves, while defending the World Tree.”
     “Well, we have unlucky people to eat.”
     “Don’t call a pebble a boulder.”
     “Stone is stone.”
     “Get a grip, Bunyip. It’s cute when overgrown koalas get mad.”
     “Screw you, Thor. Hammer-headed hairball.”
     “Enjoy picketing. Excuse me while my hammer and I cross the line between myth and legend, and, uh, things like you. Hermes sends his love. And some catfood.”
     “Mythist bastards!” 

* A Bunyip is a human-eating, swamp-dwelling evil spirit from Australian Aboriginal mythology. It is sometimes described as looking like a mutant starfish, but is also sometimes pictured like a saber-toothed tiger. Thor is a Norse god, while Hermes is a Greek god.
