Welcome to The Blogging from A-Z Challenge April 2014! This year, I’m offering up a story – each one 100 words or fewer - for each letter of the alphabet.
Some are heartfelt, poignant, sweet. Others are…not.
I hope you enjoy them.
“Something bad is coming. Soon.”
Nana says this every week, swears she has The Sight or some such nonsense.
“You feel it, too.” Her breath reeks of rotting gums and applesauce.

“Ow.” Crazy old lady. I close my eyes, digging deep for patience. But what I find instead shakes me with bone-shuddering terror, soul-shattering despair. I slip to my knees, gape up at her.
Nana cackles, pats my cheek. “Told you so.”
