(Author’s note: Y’know, I feel really bad. I haven’t communicated with y’all in the comments in a month. A lot has happened in this month, mind you, but that doesn’t mean much. So, in order to make sure I actually get back to you all, I’ll be spending part of the weekend responding to all the comments that have come in.
I appreciate how everyone who has commented so far, and I am really grateful for everyone keeping me moving in this writing thing. It’s been a tough couple months for writing, but I think I’m close to being able to bust out and really get things going. Now…here’s today’s Fictioneers!)
Shame On The Moon
by Miles H. Rost
Minjin’s father slammed open the door.
“What was that sound?!” he growled. His daughter was sitting at her desk, writing in her book.
“I have been doing homework, father. What was the sound?”
He furrowed his brows, and turned.
“Never mind. My daughter is great, and I heard nothing.”
He closed the door behind him.
Minjin counted to 10, then smiled as she opened the window again, and brought out her binoculars. Looking through them, she peered into the open windows of the nearby fitness center.
“Come to mama,” she drawled, ogling the men exercising to the light of the moon.
