Example or excerpt of a story you'd post (100 words max):
Alaina paused. She did it primarily for dramatic effect, but also to let them catch on to what she hadn’t told them.
Courtney hugged herself and shivered. “So, was it … I mean, what happened after that? You still haven’t said why the town says the demon lives here.”
Alaina poured them both some more tea, glad they hadn’t noticed their phones had died.
“Let’s see how I can best explain this. The preacher? The congregation? They didn’t think it through. Ask anyone – when you cast something out, it’s got to have somewhere to go, right? Well, when they did their little prayer thingy, no one thought to open the door. No one even cracked a window. So the demon flies out in a river of barf with nowhere to run … and it had a whole church full of bodies to take over. Any red-blooded demon isn’t going to choose an addled old blue-haired Bible thumper, no matter how funny it would be.”
Colby rubbed his eyes and yawned. “Oh man, sorry. So they think the demon chose you?”
She laughed. “Colby, you’re smarter than I thought.”
He kept talking as if he didn’t catch the insult. “But you were so young. Why did they think that?”
“Because people died around me. A lot.”
