Quick Prompt Contest 3/29/11

Haven't done one of these in a whileConfessions from Suite 500 is having a quick prompt contest for the newly released Late Eclipses, 4th book in the October Daye series. 100 words or less, here's the prompt:

Rosemary, Habitation, Artificial, Night, October and Bonus Points if you use the phrase "These late eclipses in the sun and moon portend"
Here's my entry...

"These late eclipses in the sun and moon portend…” Jalinda trailed off, staring into the sky.

“Portend? Portend what? What does that even mean?”

“Oh, Rexana.” Jalinda glared. “Why must you be so artificial?”

“Do you mean superficial? You should talk, Miss Goth. Halloween isn’t for another two weeks!”

Jalinda ignored her and continued, “They portend an ominous night of…”

“A totally awesome party!" Rexana finished for her. “Let’s go! I’m starving!”

“I agree,” Jalinda relented. “Where is Rosemary’s habitation?”

“Close. I love this warm October weather.”

As do I. More tempting skin exposed to sink my teeth into.

Great story! You did a nice job incorporating all the words.

I love writing these 100-word or less stories. I need to do more of them.
