Frightful and Damned

They've done frightful things.

Welcome to Wednesday’s flash fiction wherein I write as part of a group based on the same short prompt and post them. Here’s my contribution.

“They’ve done frightful things,” Edrea said pointing at the imp on the candle.

The creature grinned at me though whether from delighting in warmth or the desire to bite me I couldn’t say. Edrea falling back murmuring her prayers. Probably to bite me then. I leaned closer.

“Thank you for bringing it here” I said as she fled. Probably off to tell the village the latest way I’d damned myself.

I held a finger out and it sprung to bite me. And kept trying despite the dragon skin gloves. “Who released you?” That was my concern, not Edrea’s ruined meal.

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.
