Flash: Tablecloth

Under the flickering candlelight, she drew pure silver thread through her fingers, creating intricate knots. Each knot leading to the next, a web of silver and when it was done, she attached silver fringe along the edge. She spread the silver masterpiece gently across the table she had been working at; a tablecloth fit for a king, her smile was incandescent as she considered her work.

The full moon was radiant tonight, lighting the room. The wolf song surrounded her cabin as she waited by the open door with her net of silver, fit for king or an alpha wolf.

    What a wickedly enjoyable Flash in the Pan,
    lucky it wasn’t a Werewolf at the door as silver
    is not too healthy for them 😦

    Have a super Tuesday with hugs aplenty πŸ™‚

    • Thank you my friend, I am so glad you enjoyed. To catch a werewolf though, silver is just the thing!

  3. What beautiful wording – I really like this one!

  4. Why should she be afraid when she has the perfect trap. Awesome, as always, Valentine. I like that she is so calm and confident. I bet this isn’t her first time. (giggles)

  5. Why should she be afraid when she’s made a silver trap. Awesome, as always, Valentine. Most suitable for the prey. I like how calm and confident she is.

    Oh, my! I just love when these Flash stories show up in my in-box. They are the perfect length for this busy working mom, and yet, they are so filling with everything a great novel has to offer. Thanks, Val, and this one brought shivers and chills of the best kind up my spine. πŸ™‚ Hooooooowwwwwlllll! XOXO

    Terrific flash.

  10. when the catch is this royal the trap should be too πŸ˜‰
    what a story, loved it πŸ™‚

  11. Good news I was wondering for whom was she preparing. Bad news is the “guest” was a surprise. In other words, well done!

  12. I sense a trap! Intriguing story, Val. I especially loved the first sentence. Nice.

  13. What a catch this is going to be – time to feast – or be the feast (naughty smile)

  14. My apologies for the typo errors..

  15. The imagery is beautiful yet they say a picture is worth a thousand words your. story begs ftp differ .

  16. Very good Val. I like this one. I have no questions for you this week,Tom

  17. Oh what’s tangled web we weave …

    Sorry. Somebody had to say it!
