Midnight’s mysticism and magic immersed. Like a fairy tale character, I lived in another realm. A realm of loquacious cats, anthropomorphic bats who argued with me and upside down illogical events. Is Midnight the end of the day or the start?  It could be both.

I run to midnight as a place rather than a time. Turning around slowly, I view it from every sweet angle. Breathing in the heady aroma, I become giddy. With a witch’s power, a spell falls. For status quo. Returning home to a housewife’s humdrum life contrasting against midnight’s electricity. My simple wish was granted.

Margarida, the anthropomorphic bats arguing with your protagonist made me smile. Not to mention the loquacious cats! I personally love cats, but think it is probably best for them not to be able to give us, mere humans, a piece of their minds!  ?  I enjoyed reading your story. It sounds like a great start to a longer one!

I love this line, “I run to midnight as a place rather than a time.” It is something deep and intriguing. It is like a nightmare at night. Very well done, Margarida. Well-paced.

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!
