Norman, mute, recognized his grandfather who disappeared while fishing.

Grandpa stopped and said the word Norman employed to be paid for a kiss during his childhood:

“Candy !”

The grandson received his last kiss.


This text is my submission to this weekend Trifecta writing challenge : Trifextra: Week Eighty-eight.

Here is the challenge :

… this weekend’s prompt.  As you know, Trifecta has a history of dedicating the entire month of October to Halloween.  We’re kicking it off early and easy with this prompt:

You’ve found some old books.  On page 3 of one of the books, this illustration appears:

Artist credit: Dan Duford

Give us the 33 words that follow this illustration.  What happens next?

I like this challenge! :-)

drapeau-francais-franceNorman, muet, reconnut son papy qui avait disparu lors d’une pêche.

Grand-père s’arrêta et dit le mot que Norman utilisait pour être soudoyé pour un bisou pendant son enfance :

“Caramel !”

Le petit-fils reçut son dernier baiser.


Ce texte est ma proposition pour le défi d’écriture  Trifecta de ce week-end : Trifextra semaine quatre-vingt-huit.

Voici le défi:

… le texte court de ce week-end. Comme vous le savez, Trifecta a l’habitude de consacrer tout le mois d’Octobre à Halloween. Nous démarrons dés le début et facile avec ce message:
“Vous avez trouvé quelques vieux livres. À la page 3 de l’un des livres, cette illustration apparaît:
Donnez-nous les 33 mots qui suivent cette illustration.”

J’aime ce défi! 😉

  1. Didn’t his parents teach him to never take a kiss from a swampy zombie? haha

  2. If only he could’ve turned down the candy!

  3. Oh, this was creepy. And well done.

  4. Simple yet chilling. Marie.

  5. Well now, isn’t this just a creepy, uncomfortable little tale! Good take on the prompt!

  6. Clever take on the prompt-and one I could relate to!! I’m afraid candy will be my downfall one day too;)

  7. And this is why I never give my kid candy. Thanks for linking up!
