MFTS – A Stoner’s Soul

June 8, 2015 53 comments

It’s Mondays Finish the Story time, hosted by Barbara Beacham. This is the one where we get a photo and an opening sentence.

This is the final part of “The Stoner Trilogy”. If you remember, in “The Highest Spirits“, Chad and Brad lost their souls, and in “Fool Me Twice” they were conned into a “Trial” by the lead spirit, Basil.

This was the best I could do, given the number of words and while attempting to make each story reasonably standalone. Here is the cast of characters:

Chad – a stoner
Brad – another stoner
Basil – a cunning head spirit

and introducing special guest star ZEUS as ZEUS, a powerful and currently quite irritated god.

The opening sentence is in bold in my story, and other contributions may be found by clicking the blue froggy.

ZEUS was not having a good day and he made sure everyone knew it.

First his “soldiers” were too wide for his boiled eggs, now the spirits of Miners Hill had taken it upon themselves to capture souls!

The sky lit up as if on fire as ZEUS vented his rage. Spirit Chad looked suspiciously at his insubstantial joint.

“Thunder and lightning for the Trial, dude,” explained Spirit Brad.

“Heavy,” said Chad. Rain began to fall, extinguishing his joint. His face fell.

“BASIL!” screamed ZEUS to the lead spirit. “STEALING SOULS WITHOUT MY PERMISSION?”

“Um,” stuttered Basil. “Um…”

ZEUS fired more lightning which narrowly missed Chad, clipping and reigniting his joint.

“Epic!” said Chad, taking a puff.


With a wave of Basil’s hand, it was done.

“This calls for a celebration!” said Brad, reaching into his underpants for his special hidden stash.

Against all odds Chad and Brad lived to a ripe old age. And although our stoners could remember almost none of it, they both agreed (on their smoke-shrouded death bed) that they’d had a stonkingly Epic Time.

“Hey boys, how ’bout y’all makin’ yer Ma some wind chimes?”

With those words she raises the vicious stick threateningly. Terrified, the exhausted boys crawl back to their workspaces in the tiny, sealed room and begin to build the wind charms with trembling fingers…

“Wait, wind chime sweat shops?” Chad grabbed Brad’s smoke and sniffed it suspiciously.

“Yeah, dude!” said Brad, grabbing his weed back and puffing furiously. “They’re rife! We have to make this film to raise public awareness!”

“There’s no such thing,” said Chad. “How about ‘Save the Whales’?”

“Why would we want to save Wales?” asked Brad.

“Dude,” said Chad sadly, puffing away furiously.

“‘Dream Catcher Sweats Shops – the Untold Story’?” tried Brad. Chad shook his head. Brad took another drag. Chad went to the “special” cupboard to fetch the bong.

“That’s it!” cried Brad. “Exposé – The Horrors of the Bong Sweat…”

“NO!” said Chad. “Dude, seriously. Let’s just watch a film instead.”

“Bill and Ted?” asked Brad hopefully.

“Party on dudes!” they chorused happily.
