“In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story about the Day of the Dead.”
– a prompt for this week’s CW piece.
“Trixie, get up! It’s the Day of the Dead!” – Bart exclaimed, pulling a blanket off his sister.
He has heard so many stories throughout the years but was never allowed to participate in any of the festivities. This year, he was finally old enough. He turned ten in August, and his mother agreed that this year was going to be “the year.”
“Is that… Dad?” – Bart asked Trixie.
“Yes, it is” – she replied.
“Why can’t he see me?”
“Watch this” – said Trixie, pushing the mug off the table onto the floor.
“They’re here” – he said with a smile.
