Ten seconds later (August 31 st)

 

Bullet noises invaded the laboratory. Yolande raised her head from her microscope and lifted an interrogational brow to Amanda who shook her head no and waved her lady doctor to keep working. She only started worrying when she heard bumps on the door.
– Yolande, babe, what are you doing ?

Yolande, always the analyst, started to pile files.
– Gathering intel about our enemy, his gun force and then formulate a response.
– We’ll be dead by then. Let me handle this.

Amanda put her bionic leg on, fetched her hatchet and burst the door open.

Ten seconds later the corridor was quiet.

Only one leads to them all (August 30 th)

Danny  shuffled casually the pages of the grimoire. Lucy and Derek stared at him eyes wide, jaw dropped.

– What are you gonna chose ?
– Invisibility ? Reading thoughts ? Eternal Youth ? asked Derek

Danny shook his head and tssk-tssked them both and closed the book.

– Oh, come one Dan, what’s your plan ? Lucy said sitting next to him.
– Guys you really need to think ahead. All good things come to an end and only one leads to them all : power.
– Yeah, I’d like that, Derek dreamt aloud.
– Get ready, we need to make an offer to our goddess of wealth.
– A gift ?
– A corpse.

Best of de mes 100 word stories à mi-parcours

J’ai écrit presque 30 histoires depuis que je me suis lancée dans mon défi d’écriture, et à mi parcours, certaines histoires sont déjà sorties du lot :

I already wrote almost 30 stories since the beginning of my summer writing challenge, and at mid way, some stories have already stood out : 

J’ai également commencé deux séries :

I also started two series :

Joséphine Charpentier (inspirée par et en partenariat avec Mlle Louise)

et Morning Light

Ces trois textes ont été écrits au début de mon défi et n’ont pas bénéficié d’une promotion. N’hésitez pas à aller les découvrir et à me dire si vous avez envie que j’écrive une suite.

Those three last stories were written at the beginning of my challenge and havn’t been promoted at all. Don’t hesitate to discover them and tell me if you’d like to read the sequel.

Pour finir, deux de mes textes ont suscité une demande de suite :

J’espère que vous aurez plaisir à les découvrir ou les redécouvrir. Le feed back, les commentaires, demandes de suites ou les câlins sont toujours les bienvenus :).

I hope you’ll enjoy discovering or rediscovering these stories. Feed-back, commentaries, sequels requests and hugs are always welcome 🙂 .

Daily post : Schmictionary of Marsala

This post is an answer to the daily post prompt Dictionary, Shmictionary

I  admit I used a word I wasn’t quite sure about for the Ready, Set, Done prompt on the Daily Post blog. We had only 10 minutes to write a story. No editing, no correcting, no time out to think or google a word.
In the story I wrote, a young woman is waking up after a night of fun and wild partying with her lover. She has beer in her hair. But beer isn’t indicating anything else than common beverage. I wanted to hint that the night drove both my characters out of their routine and that they got creative. So I had to include another clue. Marsala. Sounds great. I love this word but I can never remember what it is : something to drink or something to eat  ?  A liquor or a cheese ? Anyway, it sounds exotic so I wrote it in and googled it this morning. That’s a liquor and it works well in my text. I got lucky this time.

You can read the text here (it’s in French).
