Six Sentence Sunday – The Storm Mirror 4

First six. Second six. Third six.

So, Melvin is at the village market, and finding out more about a possible reason for the storm that killed his brother…

“Well, I don’t believe that I’ve ever heard any of the witch’s name,” Auntie said, smiling up at him.

“I asked a few times, but she said that for her kind, names had great power, and asked me every time to call her Sunshine. She lives in a big grey house up on the cliff-top, and used to pay me in the most creative and splendid ways for my most unusual weeds. Until – just after the New Year, she told me that my services were no longer required. It was a few months after that the first storms came, but you know what? Whenever there’s a bad one, the storm clouds don’t seem to come from over the water, or from the lowlands, but they just sort of appear at the cliff-top.”

  1. Sunshine doesn’t really fit her. What else is she going to do with those storms?

    Great piece, and thanks for commenting on my blog.

  3. Kate Warren says:

    Interesting. I like how the storm clouds just appear on the cliff tops. Also I love how the witch wants to be called Sunshine.


  4. Something has changed drastically. Maybe “Sunshine” no longer fits her?
