As part of our Year of Writing, participants have the opportunity to enter a Daily Drabble contest throughout the month of February. This contest consists of writing a short drabble–100 words or less–based on our fill-in-the-blank prompt, which is posted daily on our Twitter.

The prompt for February 5th was:

Winner: Jes Bowers

“I’m going to the store. Need anything?”

“Oh! I could totally go for my mortal enemy’s craven heart, right now. That’d make me feel much better.”

“You do realize we have that in the freezer, right?”

Curious, she went over to the freezer and checked.

She had only been making a joke about the heart thing.

Her friend had not.

About Jes Bowers

According to reports, Jes is a cryptid that lives in the Austin area of Texas, and migrates to the coast in certain seasons. This cryptid is easy to approach, and in fact seems to love human contact, fond of talking people’s ears off about their cats. If you’re unable to make the trip to sight them in the wild, they’re also on the internet.

Check back in tomorrow for the winners of today’s Daily Drabble contest!
