Okay, slight mistake, accidentally used last week’s prompt for Friday Fictioneers. Bear with me here, it’s been a while.
As Alice checked her watch, the seconds hand was ticking past 9. Her date was late. The only company available was a yellow-eyed cat, watching from the path.
“The thing they must understand,” she told the cat, “is that I can’t bear lateness.”
She stared at the lake. The night sky reflection was so perfectly clear, Alice felt she could tumble in and end up amongst the stars. She leaned further over the wall. Suddenly, the cat was between her ankles, her balance was gone, and in she went.
Curiously, there was no splash.
“Enjoy Wonderland,” the cat chuckled.
I really enjoyed this, misskzebra! Nicely clever. Keep going with the challenges! – Theresa
