The F Files #1


Superman and Icarus had been friends since kindergarten.
On a boring afternoon, Icarus confided to Superman that he wanted to fly but was afraid of wings. Superman, always the nice guy, told him he only needed a cape.
The young men climbed a high cliff. Icarus donned a red cape and, arms in front of him, hurled himself in the air next to Superman.
Superman blew a light breeze to keep Icarus airborne but as he turned his head, a generously bosomed milkmaid waved to him. His concentration flew and Icarus fell into the sea.
Their friendship ended that day.

    Haha! Like it... and, being a bit of Philistine when it comes to ancient mythology, I've learnt all about Icarus. And Superman showed that he was a man.

    Love it. I just hope Lois Lane doesn't find out about the generously bosomed milkmaid!
