The Meeting

By Scott L Vannatter – 100 Words

The gull brushed the other’s beak with her claw.  They flew together for hours.  A love had been building and needed release, a safe release.  Side by side, coasting on the breeze, they sounded out their adoration for each other as only flying birds can.

As dusk crept in, they landed, touched, and went their separate ways.  It was not until she arrived at home that Carreye shifted to her mortal form and put her hidden clothes back on before going into the house.

“Where have you been, Dear?” Auger stated from his chair.

“To the store.” Simple and easy.

    Is there more…?

    Okay, you had me from the beginning. But I have to say, even though it’s a great story, I’m disappointed for the “love birds.”

      I have gotten a couple of comments like that. I don’t promote having an affair, but it just seemed to flow out of the story and I let it do that. In my mind I am thinking that, perhaps, she knows that she only likes this “person” because he is a shifter, too.

    I really enjoyed the fantasy element of this, but how you made it so relatable to the human experience. Nice work!

    Oh I liked this one. Unexpected ending. 😀

    There was something about this piece that really caught me. I’ve read it several times, but I’m not sure what it is exactly. Very plain, clear writing, and a very plain clear story.


    • kindredspirit23  On October 4, 2013 at 7:49 pm

      Thank you. I watch “True Blood” and the times the shifters in it went on “runs” through the wild just caught me.

    I’m glad she has a release. It must be fun to soar with the birds,

    This made my stomach turn. Sorry I abhor dishonesty.


  • dmmacilroy  On October 4, 2013 at 6:10 am

    Dear Scott,

    You had me worried there for a while. i thought the two gulls were going to use an old condom for something….Never mind. Loved your last line.




  • rochellewisoff  On October 4, 2013 at 6:10 am

    Dear Scott,

    I envy Carreye’s ability to take on a different form.




  • Perry Block (@PerryBlock)  On October 4, 2013 at 5:21 am

    Not sure what’s happening with the transfer to human form, but a lovely piece. Now what happens next?


  • Sandra  On October 4, 2013 at 3:10 am

    Great idea. I think that’s the first one I’ve read that saw the prompt as an act of tenderness. I thought it was a mother bird feeding a young one but so many have portrayed it as a fight. Well done Scott.

    well, that was wonderful 🙂



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