Maid of the Mist- Friday Fictioneers

Leaning on the wooden stile that separated the moor from her home, Sandra sighed.

Smokily, the mist beckoned her. Shivering, she drew back and snuggled deeper into the warmth of the overcoat around her form.

Nobody spoke of the extraordinary around here. She knew that too well. Look what had happened to poor Moira. She should have kept her trap shut about her ‘ability to make people disappear’.

There were still days that Sandra could hear the murderous screams and the sound of the pitchforks. Moira had been silenced forever.

Murder on the Moors- Catchy title for a book, though. . .

  1. Dear Shailaja,

    First, welcome to Friday Fictioneers. This made me think more of the Salem witch trials. Any idle word taken out of context and…

    Good one.



    1. Thank you so much, Rochelle! Yes, that was the idea I was going for. I have linked up before with Friday Fictioneers, but via my other blog. This is my first time with this new blog. I enjoy FF very much and thank you for keeping it going. I love the way you diligently visit every person on the list. Very commendable!

  2. I am assuming you are writing this as you post it? What a great idea and so nicely done as well. Do you have an idea of how it will end or are you seeing where it is going to take you?

    1. Niagara Falls allusion was the idea, to draw the reader in. Hope that worked πŸ˜‰ Did Sandra kill Moira? Hmm, come to think of it, I never took it in that direction, but now you’re giving me ideas πŸ˜‰

    1. Yes, that’s also another reason I decided to move it away from the parenting blog, Beloo. Just imagine a mother looking for ways to calm her child down, reaches my blog and reads this. Oh, the horror! πŸ˜‰
