Greetings, Weekend Writing Warriors! This is my next snippet in my short story entitled “Birdie”.

#8sunday October 25 , 2015 Birdie 12

This story is told from the point of view of a ‘haunt’. She is trapped in a limbo of homeless wandering, when she meets an orange cat and its human child. After an encounter with the child’s abusive father the trio escape into the nearby wilds.The next morning the child takes them on a mission…

To read the preceding text click here. The story continues with the following 8 sentences:

Later that morning, we assembled ourselves in a lesser degree of disarray. She then pulled out a small packet of stale biscuits for breakfast, and the child and the cat feasted.

Tentatively, the three of us made our way, back into town. The child was no longer concerned about discovery by her father who, as she put it, was now, very likely out for the count.

The streets were quiet, and we travelled unnoticed. We were invisible to eyes that did not want to see, a shadow, a thin ragamuffin, and a scruffy cat.

When we stopped outside the small town hospital, I was surprised and not a little confused.

“Come, Miss, we know a secret way in.”

  1. Who is this child? I have a feeling there is something significant… is there any possibility that the child is the haunt in her youth? Really keeps the reader curious and coming back for more.
