hundred word wednesday – “the shitty banshee”

We got a weird one today. The moral is be true to yourself. If you’d like to write a tiny story, write something about being true to yourself and leave it in the comments. If being true to yourself means not writing a story, then I don’t know what to tell ya.

She had never fit in with the other banshees. When they were all off terrorizing villages and foretelling death, her heart was never in it. She was just too happy to pull off a convincing wail.

She found it odd, then, to suddenly find herself in the midst of a terrible depression. The strange thing was, she was too mopey to work up the energy to even leave her cave anymore. She just sat around eating pastries, feeling sorry about herself.

“I never liked being a banshee anyway,” she thought. “Fuck banshees.”

So she spent her life inside, eating donuts.
