Second Crusader Challenge: Goldfish flash fiction
Not much of a story, this is really more of a glimpse at the characters in my current WIP, A Window to the Gift. Hope you guys enjoy!
The goldfish bowl teetered slowly from the edge of the blade. Vincent scowled at the giggles he heard from the girls in the corner. Smoke wafted Katherine’s cigarette. His nose twitched.
“A-chooo!” He saw the bowl fall.
Flicking her wrist, Katherine caught it with her force-field. It floated in the air for a moment, before flying across the room and coming to rest on the kitchen table.
He felt Clara’s arms around him, with a kiss she said, “Let me show you how it’s done.”
She snapped her fingers and he watched the flames dance across her hand.
