“What is it?”
Nervous fingers hovered over the black and white page. “I think… it’s a spell book.”
“A spell book? Really? Why would Mrs. Donahue have a spell book?”
Louise glared at Haley. “Obviously she’s a witch.”
Haley scrunched up her face. “You think?”
“Definitely. Look around. Her backyard’s a huge herb garden. She wears that big creepy hat when she’s outside. And she’s always cooking stews.”
The rustling of fabric behind them made the girls start. Trembling hands clutched together as Mrs. Donahue hurried towards them.
“Oh, girls, thank goodness! You’ve found my art book.”
Remember when your imagination would run wild at a strange noise? Or when you would find something odd and speculate on it’s use? Don’t you kind of miss those days? It makes me so glad I have a kid old enough to play pretend…gives me an excuse to exercise my wild imagination. 🙂
It’s been awhile since I’ve contributed to the Friday Fictioneers weekly writing collection and it’s good to be back! Hosted by the delightful Rochelle Wisoff-Fields, a photo prompt is posted on Wednesdays with her own 100-word (or less) story. Writers are invited to contributed their own inspired story and to comment on others. Come join the fun (and click the blue button below for more!)
