Flash Fiction Friday: The Masks in the Window

            The masks clattered against the window, chattering as a woman passed the house.
            “Here comes another one.”
            “I say she gets a week.”
            “Make it three days.”
            “I like the long ones better. Two months of steady decline!”
            “If we don’t make a decision soon, she’ll be gone.”
            “One week!”
            “Three days!”
            “Two months!”
            The cat hissed. “Witch! Come shut up your masks.”
            “Don’t worry, Cat. They never actually kill anyone. They’re too indecisive.”
            “She’s almost gone!”
            “How about one month?”
            “Ten days.”
            “I don’t care about that.” The cat swatted at one of the masks. “They interrupted my nap.”

Love, love, LOVE the idea of indecisive talking masks! And that cat is so cat-like :D

You did a great job with characterizing through the dialogue. Plus I love how cute and silly it is :D
