Microfiction Monday #55

Lovely Susan from ‘Stony River’ organises and hosts this weekly meme. Thank you Susan! She provides a picture and the challenge is to create a story in 140 characters or less – including punctuation! Click here to read more marvels of microfiction – and perhaps join in. It’s fun!
Here is this week’s picture accompanied by my offering.
Baby with broomstick, lucky black cat. No witch, she! 
Yowls, screams, blood under nails speak otherwise. 
Trick or Treat’s tough these days!

  1. That blood under her nails...she has murdered before...and maybe again!
    Very clever, you paint a picture with so few words. Great job!

  16. I took it to mean the blood under the nails was the little girl's blood under the cat's nails (claws), as it yowled and screamed and scratched her to get away! Yes, Halloween's tough these days! Good one!

  20. I know that little witch is real although we didn't have any kicking and gouging to get to our door this year, but I sure did when I lived in Vegas. One year I even had a grown man mug me right on my own porch and steal my bowl full of candy.
