Combination – Crimson’s Creative Challenge

This is my response to Crimson’s Creative Challenge #155 and Crimson’s Creative Challenge #156

I had a story in mind for #155 but just didn’t get around to writing and posting it at the time. So why not combine them, I thought. I have seen Dale do it, so there… 😉

The CCC challenge is open for everyone and asks for creative responses like flash-fic stories, poems, pictures, captions, and, and, and… check it out!

Pink!

“This stuff is pink!”

“It’s called rosé, and it’s wine, not ‘stuff’.”

Vellichor – Weekend Writing Prompt #233

wk 233 vellichor

My entry for this week’s Sammi Cox’s Weekend Writing Prompt.

Vellichor

“Remember Vellichor,” he says and kisses me goodbye. He’s always been mysterious.

Three weeks without a word turn worry into panic. I have to do something.

I rush to the library where we first met.

“Vellichor,” I whisper.

I stare at the scintillating doorway appearing out of nowhere.

They Come in Legions – Weekend Writing Prompt #231

I’ve seen Sammi’s prompts around for a while now and been tiptoeing around it, because I really don’t have much time and the challenges I participate in usually keep me busy enough. But I really do like Sammi’s prompts and so now I’m participating in Sammi Cox’s Weekend Writing Prompt #231.

Maybe I can keep it up.

They Come In Legions

Buzzing and humming, the swarm darkens the room.

My nerves are frayed.

They touch me! They sting!

Shouldn’t have burnt their nest.

Lily’s eyes grow huge as she stares at the roundabout.

“Is this fairyland, Mum?”
