I had a little fun with this week’s prompt, and  the road less traveled.

              LUNA MOTH:

Although rarely seen due to their very brief (1 week) adult lives, Luna Moths are considered common.  As with all Saturniidae, the adults do not eat or have mouths.[4] They emerge as adults solely to mate, and as such, only live approximately one week. Flash Friday Fictioneers


“Damn! Closed! You said they were open twenty-four hours. I’ve tasted a strawberry-banana smoothie the whole flight! Now, what?”
“Sorry. Maybe, we’re early. It isn’t like we can walk in the place an order, stupid.”
“Wait. A light flickered on in the back, I think. We might be in luck. What do you want?”
“Are you serious?”
“Yeah. Why?”
“You see that hunk of burning love putting on his apron? My mind isn’t on food, and with only a week to live? Well, that’s where this Luna plans to land. Strawberry-banana?”
“You’re such a fairy!”
