Drabble Challenge #79

Prompt: leap

“Mr. Grasshopper, may I ask you a question?”

The grasshopper sighed as he spit a wad of brown gunk. “Yes, I suppose you may.”

“Why haven’t you asked me for a kiss?”

“Why should I? We‘ve only just met.”

“Your brother, Mr. Frog asked. In fact, he promised that once I’d kissed him, he’d become a prince.”

“What did you do?”

“I ran away.”

“He isn’t my brother.”

“Oh! I just assumed! You are both so good at…you know, the whole jumping thing.”

“Pardon the pun my dear princess, but perhaps you should’ve taken that little leap of faith.”
