100-Word Stories, Twitter Prompts
Alice sits before the oven, a tea towel clutched in her hands, her eyes glued to the cake tin. “Please don’t burn…”
“A watched cake never bakes.” Sven chuckles.
Alice gasps and fumbles for her notebook. “The recipe didn’t mention glowing symbols!”
“Funny.” Sven frowns as Alice rushes out. “What are you—”
Otherworldly voices waft out of the oven. “N’lweyet kara’he—”
“What the hell!” Sven grabs a chair.
Fire extinguisher in hand, Alice elbows him aside, kicks open the oven and sprays the cake.
The voices stop.
“How… how did you know to do that?” Sven stammers.
Alice shrugs. “Habit.”
Original prompt: “The recipe didn’t mention this!” by Matt

Emergency Magical Services
EXT. SANTA MONICA BEACH – LATE EVENING
A GLASS BOWL full of RED GOO flies through the night sky.
A 22-year-old woman (MAC) slides in the sand on her knees. She wears jeans and a t-shirt covered with sand and riddled with little holes. Her hair is tousled; she has had better days. She catches the bowl.
Carried by the momentum, goo sloshes around the bowl and a dollop falls onto Mac’s thigh.
