Friday Fictioneers is a weekly group hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields who chooses a photo prompt to inspire writers to produce a 100 word piece of flash fiction. Do use the link to her blog if you are interested in joining the group. It’s a great way to get involved in writing.
At the end of the day
I looked along the wires and counted them. Ninety-three in total. A month ago there had been fewer than fifty. Two months ago, fewer than ten. The drop in temperature was a factor but there was something else. They were gathering for a particular reason. And not just here. They were meeting in trees, on apartment blocks, on office buildings. The numbers were growing.
A loud sound ripped through the air, commanding attention. Hudd was calling. I stretched, flapped my wings and rose into the air. All around my fellow crows did the same. The sky blackened. It was time.
