Guess what Dear Readers? I was running in the house yesterday and somebody left a calendar on the floor and I tripped over Tuesday and landed flat on my Wednesday. Luckily, I was able to hobble to my keyboard and cobble together a 100-word story for this week’s Friday Fictioneers.
Björn Rudberg provided the picture this week. He’s a really wonderful writer and you can magically materialize over at his blog and check out all his great stuff here → Yes! I want to magically materialize over at Bjorn’s Blog!
Babette Bladderini Gets a Better Part
The day Babette Bladderini was killed in a landslide was a strange blessing. Babette was born between bullets exchanged by the Bladderini clan and their mortal enemies, the Parcheesi’s.
While being born, a bullet grazed Babette’s head, leaving a permanent part in her hair a little too far to the left, and Babette’s fate was sealed. She lived her entire existence never knowing a good hair day.
Then, a landslide. The Parcheesi house slid over the top of Babette’s head, killing her instantly while simultaneously parting her hair right down the middle.
Oh that fate. Always a day late and a dollar short.

Until next time . . . I love you
