Welcome to the monthly round up of all my #ThursThreads tales. Since y’all have signed up for the Wishlist Membership, this is the first tier reward.
Most of these bits are of upcoming tales, written to prompts from the #ThursThreads #flashfiction challenge I host each Thursday. We’re going on 424 weeks (about 8 years and 2 months) and I’ve written for pretty much all of them. But this is the first time I’ve collected them in one place.
July had five Thursdays so there are five tales listed below along with their dates and prompts. Happy reading!
Week 420, July 2, 2020
Prompt: “You could change that.”
“Flint.” Loki caught me just as I slipped out the door to the rec room. “A word if you please.”
Not much freaks out a gargoyle, but when Loki asked for a word, even I swallowed hard and followed him to his office without argument. I suspected he wanted me to shut the door but I refused to do so without prompting as he settled behind his desk and put his feet on the surface.
“How was your night last night? Good lay?”
Unease surged but I shrugged with nonchalance. “Good enough. The lady was in trouble and I was in the right place at the right time to help. She was very grateful.”
Loki’s grin widened. “Det er bra. Will you see her again?”
I tilted my head from side to side. “Maybe. Why?”
He gave me a one-shouldered shrug I didn’t believe for a second. “It’s been a long time since you’ve spent the night away from the compound. It’s not your usual, ja?”
I snorted. “I spend a lot of nights away from the compound, especially when the holidays get too frenetic.”
He raised his eyebrow. “Once every month is not a lot. And you’re mostly alone. Of course, you could change that if this woman becomes more important to you.”
I held myself still, not wanting to give the Norse God of Mischief any ammunition. I saw how he badgered the other members when they found partners and I wanted none of that.
