I had been watching them quarrel through the window

What is WonHundred Word Wednesdays? It’s when a group of amazing authors and I write 100 word stories all based on the same short prompt and post them. All the variations are fun to read. Here is my entry for the week.

Rubbing my forehead, I sighed. I had been watching them quarrel through the window and no end was in sight. One was bad, but two was a jarring caterwaul. Their tattered robes jostling agreed with my assessment.

“Banshees,” I muttered when Mother joined me. “Can’t they give up the howling and pick.”

Mother sniffed. “It’s an honor having them both. One from each family line.”

“I know. He carries each line equally. At least my deluded blood will earn but one.”

Mother smacked my head. “If you’ve luck enough for that.” Behind the distraction was the certainty, father was dying.

Don’t forget to read the other’s takes on the prompt. More stories go up throughout the day. Be sure to check our page on Facebook for updates as everything becomes available: WonHundred Words.
