Thanks, Rochelle, for hosting this party for two glorious years. I just started a little over a year ago. This little weekly exercise to write a 100 word (more or less) story using the photo prompt challenges us to cut the excess but precious verbiage– “killing our darlings” a few at a time every week. Great practice!! to read and/or post, follow the froggy link.
Rules Are Made To Be Broken
“Witches can’t’ cross water. It’s a rule. She’s on the other side of the river. We’re safe.” I propped my feet on the coffee table.
“You shouldn’t have killed her cat.” She picked up the binoculars.
“You can’t kill a cat; they have nine lives.”
“Maybe you used up its last one. That would really piss her off.”
“Stop staring at the sky. I tell you she can’t cross the river.”
“Then why do I see something flying this way?”
“It’s a bird. Or a plane.”
“No such luck. Good news. The cat’s with her. And they’re making good time”

My first novel, Just Like Gravity, is due to be released on November 3. It’s a paranormal romance/adventure kind of thing. If you’ve enjoyed any of my Friday fictioneering, please follow this blog for updates.
