Day 3 | Advent Calendar

Today Jemima Pett offers a seasonal story with characters from her fantasy series ‘The Princelings of the East’.

Trouble in part of the Realms has made a lot of people homeless, and the Inn of the Seventh Happiness is an important transport hub for travellers. It is run by run by Victor, who stars in many of the books. With little or no entertainment technology, the itinerant story-teller – or Narrator – is a welcome guest to keep people entertained; in this case, Willoughby shows up in the nick of time.

Willoughby the Narrator is book 7 in the series, and is due to be published in spring 2017.

Jemima says “I wrote this originally last year, for the Princelings website, as part of the general degeneration of society in my Princelings world.  I read it now and think I’ve been altogether too accurate in…

Cracked Ice

cracked-ice

She had  been skating  all afternoon

The  sky  now golden shot  with pink

The ice strong  and  inviting

Her new skates were flying

Suddenly ice cracked

She was lost

Under

Ice

Home for the Holidays by Sarah Brentyn

My sister wakes me.

She puts a finger to her lips and we pad down the hall in our fleece footie pyjamas. It is still dark so she holds my hand on the stairs.

Our parents stand in the dining room. I feel strange—like it’s snowing inside. There is quiet and cold. Our da stares at something on the floor: a Christmas stocking.

I don’t understand why it’s in our house. We don’t have stockings. Or a tree with ornaments.

“There’s a note,” Da says.

My sister points to the shattered window. We are not welcome here.

The Gift of Now by Tara Paray

In the hurry and scurry of the holiday season, how can we notice the colors of the season flying by?

There are so many shades of red and green, and not just on holiday decorations. There are so many faces smiling, if you care to notice. Each day passes, and every moment is like snow on a sunny Sunday — here until it’s not. I try to hold on to the moments, but they slip through my fingers. I try to capture them in photos, but it’s impossible — the instant I attempted to snap is gone by the time the shutter clicks. img_5619

Another December is here, and soon, the end of another year. How fast it went, how fast it will go. No. I stop, and breathe, and remember — all we have is the best present…

It is the door to a Tudor Cottage near where the dog and I go for our walk . I popped across the road and asked if I could take a photo for my blog the owner  said yes . I did not like to hang about but I think the shot is good. 

So here it is. 


Can you see the ceiling brand through the window. 

I have to dash off now, I promise to do better next week!

Twittering Tales #6 – 30 November 2016 Red Wine

 

rosc3a9_7748700626

The  light played upon  the  glass  reflecting  the  windows of  the bar.The  barman  watched  the  woman in  the  red  dress silently  fondling  her glass. Something about  her   grabbed  his  interest.

As  the  evening  progressed  he  found  he  was  becoming  obsessed with  her, her figure, her  hair, her  lips  and  her  eyes. She  was sex  personified  and  she  was making him hungry, he could  feel  her  body  calling  him,he  was  growing hard  and  so distracted.   It was  becoming  impossible  to  concentrate, all he could  see  was her breasts  rising  and  falling  as  she  breathed.

Eventually he  could  take  no more  he vaulted  the bar  and  made  straight  for her. As he  approached  she  turned  and  smiled  at  him her  eyes  like ice cooled pools .”Hi”he  said  “my  name is  Tom”, “Hello  sexy  mine name is  James” was  the husky  reply.
