fear of Friday the thirteenth

Sooooo I know I was going to hold back on the short stories for a while but I just have to share my latest one with you.  I really enjoy condensing a plot into a matter of lines and the Morgen Bailey monthly challenge is one I have enjoyed taking part in.

This months theme is ‘SUPERSTITIOUS’. If you fancy a go at flash fiction head over to the below link and send in your entry:

Here is my attempt this month:


“Oooh we should play that game” giggled Evanora, “you know? Light as a feather, stiff as a board.”

“What’s that?” Theodora questioned.

“Easier to show you.”

“Now Glinda, you lay there and we’re going to lift you, using only two fingers.”


“Light as a feather, stiff as a board.”

 “Light as a feather, stiff as a board,” a chorus of 12 chanted.

“Look! She’s floating.”

Thwack!!! Wallop!!!

“Evanora? What’s that noise? Evanora?!”

Waiting reply, Locasta stirred the pot. Darn! After last time she should have known better: Friday 13th was no day for a sleepover.

“Oh, hello Obsidian.”
