What is WonHundred Word Wednesdays? It’s when a group of amazing authors and I write 100 word stories all based on the same short prompt and post them. All the variations are fun to read. Calder is back!
On to the new chapter!
The silence hung awkwardly. Calder itched to turn toward her. They’d always shared joking looks, but not now. He couldn’t afford to indulge.
“I shouldn’t have let you walk away.” Perdyn said.
Calder shook his head. “There wasn’t any other choice. If I’d stayed. . .”
“If you’d stayed, trouble.” Perdyn waived her hand as if swatting an annoying gnat. “Your leaving caused a different trouble. We need you back.”
Calder hunched his shoulders, trying to make the worn cloak hid him better.
Perdyn raised a finger turning away toward Sorrell. “Is there something you want to tell me, son.”
Don’t forget to read the other’s takes on the prompt. More stories go up throughout the day. Be sure to check our page on Facebook for updates as everything becomes available: WonHundred Words.
The Calder Chronicles
Welcome to the Calder Chronicles. Calder began as a character in the WonHundred Word Wednesday flash fiction. However, he wasn’t content to have just one week and kept coming back. Here his stories are gathered together and new installments will come.
