It is the first day of November and so, today, someone must die.
It happens every year, but today I couldn’t touch my breakfast. Mitch sat across from me–coffee in hand, nose buried in the newspaper. Clearly, he wasn’t concerned. Why was he ignoring me?
This is my first time doing a Trifecta Challenge. I’ve thought about it for a while, but this time, I actually did it. The prompt for this weekend’s challenge is below.
In The Scorpio Races, author Maggie Stiefvater writes, “It is the first day of November and so, today,
someone will die.” Give us the next thirty-three words of this story, as you imagine it. Take it wherever you like, but make it original and make it 33 words exactly.
