Welcome to the Weekend Writing Warriors challenge. My hope is that over the next six months you’ll see either a nice & tidy 8-10 sentence flash fiction story or an excerpt from a piece I’m working on (like the one below). Check out other writers at the link above and the Weekend Writing Warriors twitter #8sunday. After this snippet you can find earlier links to this story. This piece is entitled “Castille’s Stone.”

“The chick from the shop earlier this evening?” she asks, her hands on her ample hips.
“C’mon boys,” Porsche says, moving up the stairs quickly looping her arms between the green and pink suited men, “Let’s pay Elise a visit.”
I follow behind flanked by the man in orange; I don’t think this night is going to end well.
