#100WordHorror ★ SilverFox

The day started typically enough, it was my first day off of three. I had just gotten up and was headed for my first cup of coffee and a cigarette.  

Fresh, hot, coffee! I can't think of a better way to start my day.  

The morning was lovely and the sun was already shining, so I decided to step out on my back porch and enjoy the fresh air. When I opened the door I was very surprised to see the skull of a dog, I believe, sitting on my bench looking straight at me.  

It was obvious that someone had placed it there intentionally. I really wasn't quite sure how to take this at first so I decided I needed to call my sister (she is a practicing witch) and ask her how she felt about it.  

Her first question was: “Does it have a gris bag attached?” I told her it didn't, and she told me that I really didn't have anything to worry about - it was probably just someone reaching out to me.  

I really wasn't sure about who had offered this to me, but I accepted it as a gift and decided to go about my business. 

I doubt I will ever know who really sent it, but I have never felt there was any ill-will attached.★

This true story was written by my wonderful mother aka SilverFox. SilverFox lives in Houston, Texas and she is a strong, sweet woman with wild hair, kind eyes and more magic in her blood than most. 

Although SilverFox is not a practicing Witch, it is apparent (to me) that she certainly could be if she wanted to. Some people have an easier walk with nature than others (and my mom and aunt are blessed with that gift).

SilverFox is not a "writer" (as she tells me often enough), but I was able to convince her to put this story down on paper for Wicked Shorts. This is the first time she's ever written a story, and I'm so proud of her!!!😍💜
