The Nuisance Demon

PROMPT: Science Fiction Competition 2018

 “Place coffee beans on the edges of the pentagram.” My best friend, Richard, read from the book we had gotten at the yard sale.
    I did.
    “Chant ‘hype’ thirteen times.”
    I nodded, and began to chant.
    Smoke formed in the center of the pentagram and a tall figure, with flames instead of hair materialized. I assumed it was the demon, though for all the experience I had with all things demonic, it could just as easily be the soul of...

Parade Season

PROMPT: My December Competition 2017

Small flame

PROMPT: Writing Small
