Graveyard Shift

The graveyard shift is the hardest. You sit. You watch. You fight the enemy inside, the one that makes your eyelids droop. Only the hardest, only the best make it through this hour. But a woman’s gotta do what a woman’s gotta do. The reward will be worth it. Continue reading “Graveyard Shift – Friday Fictioneers Flash Fiction”

Dreams of Dancing

The looters always overlook panic rooms and bunkers. She, on the other hand, knows where to look. This bunker’s gold. There’s canned meat, crackers, even wine. And shoes.

“What were you thinking, Abigail? What will Mab say?”

Lady Wisdom

She’s under full sail and running fast before a steady wind. Her prow is shaped like a bird–an owl–its mighty wings spread wide. My ability to wisecrack has left me, my mouth hangs open and my eyes hurt from staring.

I have to apologize for my very, very late reviews for last week’s stories, the ones I got around to do anyway. I just had recovered from an evil cough and got my energy back when, bang, another cold hit me last Friday. Sore throat, running nose, blocked brain and another cough… that’s been my week. It’s still not over but I hope it will be soon. I really don’t want to have the third bug that floats around, which translates into the pestilence of the gut… And so, always optimistic, I contribute this week although maybe I shouldn’t. I’m hopeful that this week I can keep up with reviews… (waves fist at viruses and bacteria).

Painted Grasshopper

Grab me and I kill you.

Well, at least I try. I squirt a yucky goo at you when you touch me. This hurts you. It burns… or maybe it just gives you a good scare.
