“But when?” asked Hydra.
“Two hours ago,” sighed Yuffie.
“So there is no cat kibble anywhere in the house?” whined Hydra.
“Afraid not,” sighed Yuffie.
“Can’t the illustrator buy me more?” sniffed Hydra.
“He says you’re too expensive to keep,” replied Yuffie. “I have stolen his wallet four times this week and there’s been no money it.”
“Well there’s nothing for it then,” grumbled Hydra. “I shall go to the docks late at night.”
“Good thinking,” replied Yuffie. “We should be able to rob a few drunken sailors aye?”
Illustrator : You know I had been wondering how I kept losing money…
OK, so I am not that hard up, and I have not turned to a life of crime. But we do not yet live in a Utopian society where bills do not need paying and the cost of Hydras kitty litter bill is not prohibitive. If you would like to be super awesome, and help support our Great British groaners and flash fiction on the Internet, please do swing by my Patreon page and drop my some change for kitty litter or cups of tea.
Little Fears Patron Page - https://www.patreon.com/littlefears
The tiers are below with what you get for pledging each month.
$1 per Month – Spook
$1 is a great way to support the Little Fears and the illustrator. Writing flash fiction won’t cover the mortgage or feed the puppies. Partly because Hydra eats everything in the fridge and Yuffie keeps stealing my wallet. But it will help keep the Little Fears feed open with new tales and illustrations daily!
$2 per Month – Fluffy Spook
The $2 tier is more or less the same as the $1 tier. However you get a warm and fluffy feeling as you know you have covered the cost of a cup of tea for the illustrator at the local Wonder Cafe. Thank you! I need that!
$5 per Month – Familiar
Well hey, there’s a Roses! Does anybody say that anymore? In fact has anyone outside the M25 ever said that? You want to give me $5 a month towards Hydras food bill? Well thank you! For that lets get you some early access. How about I post fiction on Patreon, exclusive to you, a day earlier than everywhere else, and you get it first!
$10 per Month – Spirit
That’s enough to buy me 3 Posca Pens a month! Which is awesome because Red always finds at eats at least 2. Not only do you get my undying gratitude, along with early access to the fictions, I will dedicate a post a month to all of you awesome spirits, and list you all in the post with link backs to your own websites.
$25 per Month – Watcher
That’s enough to pay for the cat litter Hydra goes through. For that, you are super awesome. Being a watcher gets a post dedicated to you, yourself and you, every month, featuring you, the you behind the donation, with a link back to your own site at the bottom of the post, as well as being listed in the monthly Patreon post and getting early access on Patreon. You’re super awesome. I’m off to buy cat litter… Hydra! Get off the rug!
