Hello, fellow Fictioneers and random bystanders alike! And Happy New Year. I thought this as good a time as any to get my blog going again, as well as get back into the swing of doing Friday Fictioneers! I must apologize that my story isn’t very happy, as is my style. It’s not exactly sad, either. It’s more just life. It has a slight language warning, but I don’t think it’s too bad. Just one word that I’m sure most of us hear once, maybe twice a day, at least. And, as always, it’s 100 words on the dot. I hope you enjoy it!
Today’s story is a bit shorter than most of mine, but I like it. I think it’s sweet, and captured the feeling I wanted to. Today was a hard day, so just getting this little bit posted was like a sigh of relief! Enjoy.
Four for four for Friday Fictioneers, and feeling great! (Try saying that four times fast. Haha!) It’s a little later in the week from when I usually post, but it’s been a busy week, too. As you can see, by looking at some of my recent posts, I’m still going strong on A to Z blogging, though I’ve been only just keeping up most of this week. My novel for Camp NaNo is also coming along well, and I’m fast approaching a scene my friend has been eager for me to write. Now that I’m over the hill of this busy week, I’m feeling pretty excited for the week to come! Now, without further ado, my story.
I don’t know why, but I love stories about innocence, and about children doing adorable, superstitious things in order to try to bargain with God, or fairies, or just whatever other magical higher power they might believe in about topics that children aren’t expected to have to deal with at their age, such as sickness and death. So, it surprised me how long it took me to settle on a storyline for my story. Maybe I was trying to avoid the cliche storyline? I don’t know. Whatever the reason was, I hope you are happy with and enjoy my final product.
