"You should hear what they're saying today," the Damn Cat told Zenobia, as she set out his evening chicken.

"Indeed?" The cat, she'd discovered, loved to gossip, was completely incorrigible and occasionally very interesting. "More to do with Maude's beau-they-don't-approve of?" Zenobia had had a couple of those herself, back in the day. One of them still wrote her monthly; she wondered, sometimes, what his wife thought about that.

Unicorn-Chased, a story of Unicorn/Factory for the January Giraffe Call

For flofx's commissioned prompt, a continuation of
Unicorn Chase (LJ).

Unicorn Factory has a landing page here on DW and here on LJ



Infe's daughter Felfen was thrilled by the Unicorn sightings, not in small part because the Factory bosses were so unhappy about the whole thing, because the grumpus-grownups (not her mother and not her father, but the others, the dour sour-puss-faces who didn’t like smiles or laughter or fun) were so miserable about it, because her horrid teacher had been telling all of them that Unicorns Did Not Exist, they were a fairy-tale figment of fevered fantasy.

Felfen was happy, too, because the unicorn was beautiful, and because most of the adults and even the older kids couldn't see them, so they were something special, just for her and the other kids. Only they could see the bright creatures eating the flowers, and the laundry, and the pies left out to cool. Only they could tell their mothers when it was safe to keep the washing out, and when they should bring it in. Only they could tell which plants the unicorns seemed to turn up their noses at - there were only a few - and suggest those to the gardeners who suddenly wanted their opinions much more than they ever had.

Followed me Home, a story of the Aunt Family for the mini-Giraffe-Call

Evangaline modern-era. After Unexpected Guest


The boy jerked and scooted backwards into his pile of blankets when she said "inside." "I didn't do anything wrong!" he insisted, skittering backwards away from her.

Startled, Eva crouched down, making herself smaller while still blocking the exit. "I didn't say you did. But it's going to get really cold tonight, and the barn isn't heated."

He shifted a little further backwards. "You don't look like a witch," he answered, not sounding all that certain about it.Collapse )
