A Warm Welcome - 100 Word Flash Fiction

6 years ago

Jane’s special day had come again and she bounced through the house with renewed vigor. It seemed like a lifetime had passed since she felt this strong. Her illness had dissipated. An old memory skittered back to her like flipping to a page in her blue velvet album. “Where is everyone? No matter. I’ll make my own birthday cake.” Jane hummed as she opened and shut the painted cupboard doors searching for the familiar ingredients.

~~

“Bang!” Chelsea glanced towards the sound in the empty kitchen of the old Victorian home and asked her real estate agent, “Do you smell cake?” ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ It is a big birthday month for our family so I thought I would give all of my loved ones a big shout-out with a paranormal twist! Happy Birthday Danny, Kelly, Patty and Marilyn from your twisted wife, mother, sister and daughter-in-law! There are more birthdays this month than any other during the year.

Are you celebrating any November birthdays?
