“This is infuriating! How am I to live like this!” Clara shouted, face purpling with rage. Face, hands, arms… her entire body, actually.

“I warned you – don’t mess with Witches!” Rachel admonished.

Clara only scowled at her as passersby turned to stare at the beet-coloured girl throwing her hands into the air. Waves of embarrassment washed over her, and with them, her skin lightened to red.

“I suppose red’s better than purple…” Rachel muttered, wincing as Clara began to cry.

Clara looked at her friend’s peachy complexion through teary lashes, and wailed even harder as her own skin turned green.

    Oh dear, lets hope that poor Clara can settle on an emotion that gives her a more natural skin colour. She should definitely never mess with witches again. Fun and well written story 🙂

    Funny story, Emily. I am just wondering what infuriated Clara so much to make her turn purple.

    This is fun Emily – Clara’s like a human mood ring. I love the picture you chose for the story!

    This was funny! I am very grateful that this is not something that naturally happens to people, other than turning red from time to time ???? I do feel sorry for your protagonist and hope she will find a cure for her ‘condition’!

    Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

    Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
