Letting Life Lead
Note: It is after the deadline for yeah write. I didn’t make the grids so I’m posting the original “on the fly” 70-something word story I wrote for it (because I like it a lot). It’s based on an idea I had for a darker Little Mermaid tale with a more sinister villain. I enjoy playing with character dialogue. I tried to cut it to 42 words to make it fit. I just can’t seem to make a story work when it goes that much beyond a word count. I think I should probably stick to short stories. Brevity is not my forte.

“That is what they call me. So deserved.”
“If you interfere with my doings you forfeit your claims and my tongue will return to me — unsullied.”
“It is done! Now, clever one, that pretty tongue. Pity — you didn’t bargain for painless extraction.”
