“The Dream,” #FlashFiction

The Carrot Ranch Flash Fiction Prompt for February 7, 2019, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story that includes a sign. It can be a posted sign, a universal sign, a wonder. Go where the prompt leads. Respond by February 12, 2019.


I’ve been writing like a mad woman for months on my newest creation – The Sisters of the Fey – Genesis. I thought a sneak peek might be in order… This is the actual beginning of the book, plus or minus a few words. Are you intrigued?

It began with a dream so real that I woke up on the hard floor beside my bed. My first thought was that the ancestors were trying to tell me something. They often spoke with signs, like the day I found a feather on the ground where no birds tarried or how the wind caressed my face a certain way.

Sometimes, they spoke by invoking a change in the weather, such as when the clouds blocked out the sun leaving a coldness behind. Then, the ancestors spoke to me through the shadows. And, when the ancestors spoke, I listened.

          1. I can’t wait to share this story with you. I want to spit it into two parts. Genesis, and the Awakening (not sure on that name, yet) LOL! Thanks for your support. I was hesitant and fought it a long time. Isn’t that silly? When the faery muse speaks, I must listen. 😀 ❤
