the anything is penable challenge #6: my entry

Hello little chickadees! You’ve found yourself on Chickadee Lover Maggie, the site where a writer-reader-gamer-singer-blogger shares a lot of fun things. 😀 Thanks for being here!

Last week, I participated in the writing challenge Phoenix @ Penable hosts on Sundays. Click here to read that short story! I had a lot of fun with it so I was excited to see what today’s prompt was.

the anything is Penable challenge #6

“Doncha dare, Derry Finnigan!” Cara Mercy held her ground, a challenging thing to do on the soft sand padded beneath her toes.

“Ah, but it’s in my name, old girl!” His grin as mischievous as his intentions, Derry held his arms out in a defense stance, despite the fact that he was in offense.

The salty mist riding the waves behind Cara sent her red hair spiraling over her shoulders. Once it was through with her, it strode right toward Derry’s eyes, causing him to squint. “The wind’s on my side!” she declared boldly, wishing her voice hadn’t faltered.

He dashed in her direction then, and she squealed in delight as they hurdled into the welcoming waves.


Woo! That was a lot of fun to write! ❤

Thanks for reading! I highly recommend that you check out Penable, an awesome site and resource for writers and readers.
