She brought him the usual gifts at first. A mouse, a bird. A ribbon for him to play with.

She would run up with her gift in her mouth and prrt cheerfully around it. And he would pat her head and tell her she was a good and clever cat.

Then it was a coin with strange markings. A pendant, warm to the touch. A piece of lightning-struck wood.

He never knew of the shadowy figures that followed him, but neither did he have to fear them.

She was a good and clever cat.

(This microfiction is again in thanks to my lovely supporters on ko-fi. More coming this week!)

@InvaderXan :blobheartcat: Thank you, Xan! That's so sweet of you and this message made me so happy! :D


You're welcome! Do you often write things like this? I've followed you in the hope that you do.

I might even write some things now with knowing there are other writers on this site that publish things here :)

@UnclearFuture I do! I write at least a couple microfictions every week, and last week I also played a game where people told me their favourite colour and I wrote an encounter with a magical creature in return.

I really encourage you to write things and share them -- whether microfictions here or links to short stories, novels, whatever. There should be more fiction in the world.

And if you are looking for cool writers here:

@aldersprig all come to mind!


you can also check out the and tags to see the bite-sized fiction people have been posting.


Oh, that's awesome, I've followed you now so I can see some when you post them! Lol, are you still doing that? I might give you my favourite some time if you agree :).

Awh, thank you, I'll try, I can do small stories or stories with others, but longer stuff tends to block me, heh.

Ooooo, thank you!

@UnclearFuture I do brief windows for microfiction games like that, otherwise I get overwhelmed. I'll toot the next time I'm accepting them, and you're very welcome to join in then. :)

I look forward to you adding your fiction to the fediverse!


That's fair enough and thank you for letting me know how you do it :).

Thank you, that's so kind of you :)
