This weekend’s Trifecta prompt asks us to write 33 words based upon the following quote from Maggie Stiefvater:  “It is the first day of November and so, today, someone will die.”  So I thought it was time for another entry in Constance’s Story. Enjoy! 

As Raphael finished the daily duty roster, Constance nudged Winifred with her elbow. “You’re up!”

“Can’t you take it?” Winifred pleaded.

“I got Christmas prep, yo. Cheeriness. Minor miracles. All that.”

“Lucky you…”

    I would hate to be that angel, I’m too optimistic to have that assignment.
    But the way you wrote it was perfection.

  2. Not even a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors to decide? 🙂

    I like the dialogue. It fit well.

  4. I laughed at the ‘Christmas prep, yo’. 🙂 Nice job.

  5. Very clever, angels. Great take on prompt.

    Personally, I wouldn’t want all that Christmas stuff on my plate!

  7. Ha! I love the fun dialogue. Christmas prep. Just the two words make me shudder a little. Thanks for linking up.
