Friday Fictioneers

Well, today’s FF is very special to me as it is my picture being used!  This is special!  Now, the story must be very special, too!

Story for this week:  “The Date”

She looked over the table and smiled, difficult for her without the accompanying laugh.

Settings right; food cooking; the feast would be on time, just needing him.

It had been awhile and she was a bit on the giddy side. She clapped her hands together and jumped to her tip toes.

She noticed the cat. It was all squat and happy, sitting on the table.

“Now, Belladonna, be nice.” The cat cocked its head to the left.

“I see. Yes, the color change is good. Tell you what: I will put the broom away. You get rid of those eyes.”

    What an adorable story and a sweet darling kitty, even if she belonged to your sister!

    Dear Scott,

    Your photo prompted some wonderful stories and yours was among them. “You get rid of those eyes” was a great sentence. She knows her cat. I’m kind of scared for her date. Hope it is a strong Warlock.

    Ooh! nice… I went the witch way too! 🙂
    Merry Christmas! 🙂

    I wonder what strange brew she has cooked for her guest? You could easily make a longer piece from this. Nice job, Scott, and thanks for the photo. I had fun with it.


    • kindredspirit23  On December 23, 2012 at 10:08 pm

      Glad you had fun with it. Perhaps, I should do this one as I did the other photo prompt: write the story in sections and post each section. That was fun.
      What do you think?


  • Sarah Ann  On December 23, 2012 at 1:31 pm

    Thanks Scott for the photo – it’s prompted some great stories. I really enjoyed yours, but feel a little wary for your protagonist’s date. 🙂


  • wmqcolby  On December 23, 2012 at 8:10 am

    So THAT’S what the picture is all about! Good job, Scott and with pic as well. Have a Merry Christmas.

    A bewitching little tale.


  • kz  On December 22, 2012 at 8:10 pm

    such a fun story and thanks for the photo ^^


  • Tessa  On December 22, 2012 at 7:03 pm

    Nice story and love the cat’s name and the fact her eyes change LOL!


  • Lora Mitchell  On December 22, 2012 at 6:07 pm

    Dear Scott: After all that, I hope the evening turned out perfect and the cat’s eyes did not spook her date. Thank you for this adorable ph. prompt. It garnered wonderful, eclectic stories. Merry Christmas to you and yours.


  • elappleby  On December 22, 2012 at 8:36 am

    Nice story – lovely seasonal photo (a bit easier than last week’s!)


  • rochellewisoff  On December 22, 2012 at 4:46 am

    Dear Scott,
    Thanks for providing the prompt this week. As you can see people had a lot of fun with it.
    Cute story. Should be an eventful date. Makes me think this could be Samantha and Endora of Bewitched fame.


  • Anne Orchard  On December 22, 2012 at 3:55 am

    This was fun Scott. Maybe her date wouldn’t let the witchiness put him off, but probably better not to spring it on him straightaway.


  • Sandra  On December 22, 2012 at 3:54 am

    Nice story, great photo – thanks for that Scott.


  • tedstrutz  On December 22, 2012 at 1:45 am

    Nice story, Scott… fun trying to read that cat’s mind. Thanks for the prompt.


  • Joyce  On December 22, 2012 at 12:41 am

    Ha Ha. That is cute. She could use the broom to clean up the cookie crumbs from the cookies my cat ate. Did she have a big, black cauldron on for her guest too? 🙂 It was a good photo you provided. Thanks for sharing. My daughter has a big tom cat that looks a lot like yours here, and he is a feisty one, always looking for people food, getting all the crumbs.


    • kindredspirit23  On December 22, 2012 at 12:45 am

      This one is, actually, my sister’s cat and that picture is from several years ago. I just loved the eyes and could see a lot of stories coming from the pic.


      • Joyce  On December 22, 2012 at 11:41 am

        You’re right about that. I saw several unexpected twists with it.


  • boomiebol  On December 21, 2012 at 11:45 pm

    Especially love the last lines…nicely done


Feel free to say something; I look forward to it!
