Later, maybe I’ll make a proper introduction post. But today, I’m going to jump right into blogging with my entry for Susanna Hill’s “Halloweensie” contest. Here it is, my 100 word Halloween story:
“The Halloween Guest”
Halloween night was stormy. Grimalkin huddled under a dripping bush. Shiver!
When the witch’s cottage door cracked open, he took his chance and ran inside. Warmth! Light!
“Shoo, cat!” grumbled Tansy the witch. A howl of the wind softened her heart: “You can stay, but just for the night.”
Grimalkin explored. So much to see: jars of herbs; bottles of potions; bubbling cauldron!
Sniff! That potion didn’t smell right. Grimalkin tipped a little catnip in and stirred clockwise. Better!
Tansy tasted the potion. “Sweet! With magic like that, you’d be a great familiar. What do you say?”
“Purr!” said Grimalkin.
