First of the month fiction - November
In haste, I forgot all about First of the Month Fiction. So in unprecendent lack of creativity, I'm reposting an old seasonal story.
For newcomers, a story in exactly 100 words or one less than 30 words. Add it in the comments then link your blog if you have one.
They had planned this job for months. They knew exactly what to do. Get in, get out and most importantly, get what they came for. They had considered the risks, given her fierce, noisy dogs. They knew the strange lonely old woman was home. It would be difficult, but their greed outweighed their fear. Nervously they pulled on their masks and crept up the drive stealthily. One sidled up to the window and looked in, but there was no sign of her. The other approached the door tentatively. The door swung open unexpectedly. "Trick or treat!" the children screamed, hopefully.
Here's to a less chaotic month ahead. Happy writing!
