It’s First Line Friday over at the Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie blog. The first line this week is Spider silk clung to the doors, over the windows, and over everything she had left behind.
Spider silk clung to the doors, over the windows, and over everything she had left behind. The musty stench nearly took her breath away. Alice was speechless. She had expected some dust and cobwebs hanging here and there, but nothing like this.
“Mom?” Alice called. “You here?”
“In the kitchen, dear! I’m making your favorite ghost cookies!”
Alice started for the kitchen, picking strands Spider silk from her long hair.
“Ghost cookies!” Alice exclaimed. “Yum!”
“How was your trip, dear?”
“Not bad,” Alice replied, and stuck a cooking in her mouth. “Those high-octane broom bristles really made a difference.”
“So, what do you think?”
“About the cookies? De-lish!” Alice smiled.
“Thank you, but I was referring to the house. Whaddaya think?”
“Mom, I absolutely love what you’ve done with it!” Alice gushed. “And so fast! How did you ever manage…all of this in only a week?”
“It’s amazing what a little Faerie Dust and magic elbow grease can do, isn’t it?”
