Flash Fiction Friday ~ Gazelle

New to the blog! Flash Fiction Friday! It's just like WonHundred Word Wednesday, except, you know, on Fridays. And the alliteration actually works. 

            The girls moved in a pack, full of laughter. A tall, thin girl at the head of the crowd froze, her dark eyes scanning the mall.
            “What’s wrong, Xun?”
            “It’s happening,” she breathed. Then she ran. The others knew they couldn’t keep up; no one had beat Xun in a race in over a year. Since she started wearing that necklace.
            She burst out into the alley, breathless. I have to break the spell, she thought over and over.
            A heavy weight cannoned into her.

            Far away, on the African plain, a cheetah settled down for a dinner of gazelle.

Oh, snap! My first thought is that she's going to start eating her friends! Like the herd of gazelles that they are! Except she's not the cheetah, huh? Because she's tall and thin she must be the gazelle! Ahhh!

Okay, so I like it. But I want to know what happens next! So that's a good thing, right?

And those necklaces. They're better left alone! DON'T START WEARING THEM! :D

P.S. I'm glad this is a thing. Thanks for wanting proper alliteration and all that :D
