How are all my favorite people this morning? I want to give you a quick warning, that I won't be hopping around blogs until Sunday. Sad, I know! It's going to be hard to wait that, but I'll be at the LTUE conference for the next couple days. (Don't worry - I'll tell you all about it!)
Now... on to more important things. It is the final day of the "I'm Hearing Voices" Character Blogfest, hosted by the lovely Cassie Cook & Angela Cothran! A quick shout out to these ladies for putting together such a fabulous FEST! It has helped me a ton with my characters, and I've had a lot of fun reading other posts and making new friends!
Today's challenge is to write a 250 word flash fiction to make the reader "Feel" whichever emotion you are trying to evoke.
*Note: I have had a HARD time deciding which "emotional" part to share for today. If you know me, I like to go against the norm, but... I really had to introduce you to Clovis. So check it out.---(BTW - Skye is the one speaking.)

We walked in silence behind Clovis’ silhouette, not knowing what to say to such a fearsome creature. Clovis made a sudden stop and put his hand up, signaling for us to do the same. I heard a small noise, but I couldn’t place it. Grabbing Logan’s forearm, we both searched the area, trying to identify the noise. Clovis raised his trident and my eyes grew large. Logan grabbed my arm and we backed against the wall.
With a quick swoop, Clovis made vicious stab at the ceiling, the sound of metal and rock colliding. Logan’s muscles tensed around my waist. Clovis moved the trident into the faint light of the tunnel showing a black furry ball on the end of one prong.
“Bats," he said.
Bats? Oh my gosh he just speared a bat! Apparently Harvok’s didn’t like bats in their caves.
Clovis pulled the twitching creature off the trident and shoved it in his mouth. A loud crunch followed and my mouth dropped.
“Bats goods,” Clovis said.My nails dug into Logan’s arm but he didn’t seem to notice. His eyes were like giant orbs when we looked at each other. “I think I’m sick,” he said. All I could do was nod in agreement.
So, what did you think? What did you feel?
And be sure to hop around to the others. There are some amazing people doing this hop. I promise... you don't want to miss what they have to offer.
