Cold Comes

I actually wrote a flash fiction piece today! It's been too long! The 55 Word Challenge is back from its winter break, so I decided to take a stab at it. FIFTY FIVE?!?!?!? Only 55 words is SO HARD! Let me know what you think! :) Here is the prompt picture I chose:

Cold Comes

I woke with a start. I sniffed. My heart pounded. I threw off the sheet and winced as my feet hit the floorboards.

I dashed to the back door and danced. I watched as ice crystalized the berries growing by the door – releasing their healing properties.

It was time to begin preparations. But first: slippers.
