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: 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: 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 …

Prompt Short Story: Spirits (Of Wings & Fur 05)

Onson returned to the clan’s base, thoughtful and quiet. As their only necromancer, many of the laws and traditions that applied to others, did not apply to him, including the rule where an outgoing squad could not return until they had completed their mission. He needed time to think. This entire situation had gotten out …

Prompt Story: Making Plans (Of Wings & Fur 03)

As the pack settled into the safe house, half unpacking and half locking the place down with cameras, traps and sensors, Alfonse took one of the cars and drove away, promising to return as soon as he could. Trina and Cherry were ensconced in a panic room, guarded by two pack members at all times. …

Prompt Short Story: Convoy (OF Wings & Fur 02)

It was Louie who woke Cherry & Trina, long after the sun had gone down and the moon, gibbous tonight, slithered between the stormclouds. It was going to rain, and rain hard. Trina’s first thought was that the rain would make the burial easier. Her second thought, catching up with the first, involved some swearing …
