Microfiction Monday #69

Lovely Susan from ‘Stony River’ organises and hosts this weekly meme. Thank you Susan J 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.
Two and seven, six and nine are interchangeable – ‘tis a witch’s clock and so when folk look out, the windows are shuttered after for fear.

  9. The 6 and 9 always look very similar, but I've never seen (or noticed) a 2 and a 7 like that. Weird. ;-)

  21. Yes, very observant of you. I loved the rhythm of the sentence too, and the fact that it is a "witch's clock." Spine shivery.

    Have a great week.

  22. Oh, very clever. Took me a moment to get the significance of the numbers. Is that generally known I wonder or did you pick it out for yourself?
