Prompt Short Story: On The Hunt

Gerard stepped out of the shop doorway, his zipped, dark blue jacket, black baseball cap, and black chinos rendering him almost invisible in the darkness of night. Occasional streetlamps flickered, picking out a dark beard, grey flecked, against the strong line of his jaw. He strode purposefully, but not speedily, along the pavement. In front …

Prompt Short Story: Endings (Of Wings & Fur #15 & final)

For a long moment, Brute’s howl hung in the air, echoing off the cave walls. Every eye turned to him as he reared up on his hind legs, spread his front paws, and howled again, before dropping back down on all fours and baring his teeth in a snarl. Waiting. Even knowing he was on …

Prompt Short Story: Coup (Of Wings & Fur #14)

Trina awoke at the setting of the moon, her blood fizzing in her veins, and eased herself out from beneath the blankets she and Cherry shared in Cobalt’s camp. She could feel the approaching dawn, a gift from her inner wolf, but today she sensed more. She supposed the smell of blood in her nostrils, …

Prompt Short Story: Allies (Of Wings & Fur #13)

When Cherry awoke, she found herself snuggled up against Trina’s side. Making an appreciative noise, she wriggled in further, making Trina laugh and stop reading. “Awake at last,” Trina murmured, rolling onto her side so as to properly give cuddles. “How long did I sleep?” “A few hours. Long enough to miss part one of …

Prompt Short Story: Peace (Of Wings & Fur 12)

Cherry had barely begun to fill in Trina, Sofia, and Brute on what she’d seen before Al came bounding into one of the numerous barely-used rooms they were using to talk out of the way. The door burst open, Al already apologising, “Sorry, I’m sorry, you said don’t disturb except in an emergency and, uh…” …

Prompt Short Story: Future (Of Wings & Fur #11)

The floor of the werewolves’ basement had been cleared, everything shoved to one side to create a large central area. In the space a circle was drawn as large as possible in chalk, filled with markings and runes that shimmered gently in a way that hurt the eyes to look at. Cherry sat comfortably in …

Prompt Short Story: Trance (Of Wings & Fur 10)

The werewolves were restless. They’d seen–and smelt–neither hide nor hair of the pixies since their retreat, and that was worrying. They had heard from Trina and Cherry, which was good–they’d driven the pixies off, wings furled in shame, and were on their way home. Alfonse in particular was unable to sit still. His hair and …

Prompt Story – Choices (Of Wings & Fur 09)

Cobalt had reached the camp where those not on the squads had been resting. By now, everyone had returned, and she felt the eyes on her as she walked to her tent, refusing to turn and meet their gazes. Not until she was able to counter them. And to figure out how to do that, …

Prompt Short Story: Remembering (Of Wings & Fur 08)

As soon as they were out of earshot of Cherry and Trina–the second in particular–Cobalt had given the order for her remaining squad to group up with the others, and to take them all back to the clan’s base. She walked alone through the forest as rain dripped down her neck from the leaves, thick …
