Chronicle of a Teenage Werewolf: The Briefing

Chapter 7

I hate this room. They could do more to make it comfy, but then again it’s a conference room. I shouldn’t expect much. 
Gloria sighed as she made her way around the oak table to one of the executive chairs closest to the whiteboard. There was a slide projector on the far end and every place at the table had a booklet held together by a plastic cover and slide. The first page had Armin’s mugshot.

Just My Luck: Chapter Four

Negotiations and Memories

Laura finished her meal smiling on the inside. Longbow was known in many circles, and you just didn’t drop the name if you didn’t know him. 

She paced the room as sweat formed on her brow. She looked for any way out she could imagine and found none. Defeated, she leaned against the wall opposite the door and slid to the floor hugging her legs. She closed her eyes and started taking slow and methodical breaths. 

At least it’s not a closet.

She closed her eyes and thought back to her first meeting with Longbow.

Just My Luck: Chapter Three

Longbow

Longbow stood looking out the window while sipping his coffee. He glanced over at Mims who was mixing batter for pancakes and then to his phone for any sign of Laura having responded, but there was nothing. 

Mims poured the first quarter cup of batter into the iron skillet, “Haven’t heard from her yet?”

Longbow shook his head as he made his way back to the kitchen table where his laptop sat. He clicked his calendar and to-do lists. He answered two emails, refilled his cup, and was four-deep in his email responses when he heard Mims clear her throat.

Chronicle of a Teenage Werewolf: Chapter 4

What is this place?

Chronicle of a Teenage werewolf.

Armin wiped the blood from his maw. The hunger was rising again and overtaking his sense of caution. He tried to recall how many he had bitten without finishing them. He drew a blank. Looking around, he found a spot and began to dig a trench for the corpses he created. He reached for the third one; it stirred. 

Shit, it’s a pup. 

He quickly covered the trench and snatched the pup and placed him on his shoulders. He bolted through the forest to his lair.

Writing Prompt: Tunnel Exit

Ah, tunnels…

Love them or hate them, they are everywhere. From everyday travel to near-death experiences, tunnels will forever be a part of our lives. Gephyrophobia is the term for an irrational fear of tunnels. Yeah, I had to look that one up.
The burning question is, “How am I going to tackle this one?”

Prompt: The tunnel is the only way out.

This one is short, VERY short. 🙂

Writing Prompt: What I want…

This prompt is interesting. Why you ask? It can provoke many different short snippets from the mundane to the suspenseful.

I will admit the first time I read it, I pictured a small child constantly asking for a toy in a store until the parent got exasperated and bought it just to get the child to be quiet. I also got a darker impression of a demon coming to claim his end of the bargain only to find itself in an argument with the person who struck the deal. I had to think about this one.
Prompt: ‘Give me what I want and I’ll leave you alone.’
