He curled up on the window ledge with a book, a thick blanket covering his long legs as he sipped his tea.

As afternoon politely showed evening into the sky, the streetlights below started to flicker into life.

Idly, he looked away from his book to people – the form of human interaction he was most comfortable with.

It was a relaxing day, something which everyone around him could not understand.

His favourite things to do.

Sunday’s Six Sentence Story Word Prompt!

Everyone was surprised by the old man’s proclamation – that werewolves existed and they would come hunting that night.

At first, the villagers laughed at his ludicrous speech; after all, werewolves belonged to fragments of fairy tales and even if they did exist, werewolves would only show themselves during full moon.

Then they laughed no more.

That night, a pack of them lopped into the village, killing half the livestock and abducted a few young maidens.

They started to take him seriously and deferred to his every word and acted according to his wishes and paid him for his services and used his inventions.

If only they knew all the werewolves were created by the old man’s design.

Twittering Tales #158 – 15 October 2019

“Why are you adding all these new inspirational signs in our house?”

I blinked at her. “What? I thought you were the one putting up the signs!”

We stared at each other to see if one of us would start laughing, revealing the joke.

We shrieked when a new sign materialised.

“It’s me!”

About the challenge: Each Tuesday I will provide a photo prompt. Your mission, if you choose to accept the challenge, is to tell a story in 280 characters or less. When you write your tale, be sure to let me know in the comments with a link to your tale. This is important as I have noticed that some of the ping backs have not been working. If you would prefer to post your tale in the comments (some people have very specific blog themes but still want to participate), I am happy to post a link to your site when I post your tale in the Round Up.

100 Word Wednesday: Week 140

Pool Party

We really don’t understand what the fuss is about.

It was an open pool party invitation. Doesn’t that mean anyone can come? Although I must admit, I probably got a bit too excited and informed too many friends. Still, it’s rude of the organiser and the other guests, the manner they treated us when we arrived to make ourselves comfortable on the poolside chairs.

You should have seen how they over-reacted – screaming, running and overturning everything. The nerve of them!

I mean, we still feel hurt at the treatment even though we are dead!

(95 words)


The dead silence at the pool is a legend…If the pool is empty and quiet, something must be wrong. LOL

If you are interested, the prompt is linked below.
