#FridayFictioneers – 14/7/17 – Nothing to Wear

with 35 comments

Every Wednesday Rochelle Wisoff-Fields publishes a photo prompt to inspire writers to write 100-words of flash fiction or poetry.

At any point during the following week, the Friday Fictioneers post their 100-word tales. Read the other stories by clicking below.

Thanks to Rochelle for hosting and Janet for the beautiful photo this week.

Nothing to Wear

(Genre: fantasy; 100-words)

As the warlock’s summer party approached, Zilla resolved to attend, only the choice of perfect attire proved confounding. She could charm a gown of exquisite beauty, pervade a captivating scent, and might catch an eye with augmented lashes. It wouldn’t be the first time she had used her skills to bewitch a beau. And it wouldn’t be the last. Zilla was weary of being alone. She wanted someone to love and share her world.

She pondered hard.

Zilla arrived in standard garb, enchantment free, the plain young witch she was. She mesmerised and enthralled, and left with like-minded mate.

#FiveSentenceFiction – Desolate

with 6 comments

Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week Lille Mcferrin posts a one word inspiration. Anyone wishing to participate writes a five sentence story based on the prompt. The word does not have to appear in the five sentences, just use it for direction.

This week: DESOLATE

The Birthday Party

They are all here for her: smiles ever present, eyes sparkling at the pleasure of the occasion. Music throbs through the floorboards; beer and wine flows; food is nibbled from between fingertips or gets dropped and trampled into the carpet. She tries not to frown as she pushes her way through the steaming, jumping throng, desperate for air.

On the terrace she revels in the chill as goose-bumps rise on her skin and sweat shrinks away. She wishes her friends and family could disappear as quickly, leaving her to mark this equivocal milestone alone.
