Cooking #BlogFlash2012

Hi. Today is Day 23 and today’s #BlogFlash2012 prompt is Cooking. I originally wrote something about my cooking abilities, but wasn’t happy with it so I scrapped it and  wrote this instead. Enjoy!




I watched as she opened an ancient tome and began to gather ingredients.

She took a pinch of this and a handful of that, dropping the items in a large round black pot which hung over an open fire. As she placed more ingredients into the pot, she chanted what sounded like an incantation.

Glancing at the strange clock on the wall, the lady gasped. She gave the pot a stir then dipped what appeared to be a bunch of twigs into it. Still chanting, she approached me and began shaking the twigs over me.

“What’re you doing?” I whispered.

“I’m protecting you, my precious,” she explained, smiling.


Then came a knock at the door . . .
