What?

New town, new job, new colleagues.

Fleur and I hit it off right away. A new friend in this wintry, dull place.

She claims she’s a witch. Who cares? Believe what you want.

 “Come, have dinner at my house,” she says.

This is her house? This ramshackle old thing?

The door opens. Closes behind me. The coat-stand takes my parka.

What the …?

She smiles as I look around the spacious living room. Large, high patio doors open up into a sun-kissed garden with roses, and lavender, and birds singing, and bees humming.

A witch, huh? Works for me.

(100 words)


I pledge

    1. I don’t know since for once I didn’t have to cut when I wrote, just shuffle around a bit. I didn’t think any further than this. Maybe have Rosey visit the witch, there’d be a story there… 😉 Thank you.

  1. I wanted to yell “Don’t do it” as well, but addictions are hard to tackle and no one has reason to look down their noses. We all have our weak spots, some are less visible than others. Excellent description of her state of mind.
