We each select a photo that inspires us and in 200 words or less write a piece of entertaining flash fiction about the photo. Easy-peasy, but not always. Here's mine. Have a quickie read and then dash over to the other author's offerings and indulge yourself all over again. They are listed like bats hanging from the rafters one-by-adorable one, of at the group links scattered like candy throughout the post.
Enjoy ~ ☼ღஜ ﾚo√乇 ¸.☆¨¯`*.✿.*˜"*°
|Holly Does Halloween|
The sky, a deep yet vibrant hue of blue-black, was motionless under the shaded moonbeams that stretched across the silent landscape. Nothing moved, nor made a single sound. The crickets and whippoorwills, the oak leaves shed by weeping branches heavy under autumn clouds and tumbled broken twigs all lay still as though paralyzed by the silence.
It was the kind of hush that demanded a quicker step of purpose and determination to speed the arrival of one’s destination safely, yet perhaps still slightly unnerved. Casting an anxious glance over a slightly quivering shoulder aided in the speed and lightness afoot.
It was as though an uneasy spell had been cast like a spider’s web over the chilled and barren earth as the night deepened to a purple velveteen backdrop. The mute shadows greeted the hocus-pocus of traditional three foot goblin trick-or-treaters who threw ridicule and humor in the face of the power of death.
And then there was Holly…
No one does a stick like Holly. Even since she was a little girl, she just had a knack for it. And it showed in how she handled…and enjoyed...herself on All Hallows Eve.
The night had long since lost all mystery.
