Once your piece is polished, share it with others at the link up below. Reading and commenting on others’ work is part of the fun.

GIRLS’ NIGHT OUT
“Portland is amazing.” Dale snapped a photo. “Especially at night.”
Rochelle breathed in the rain-soaked air, relishing the salty aroma. “What a fabulous way to celebrate Karen’s certification and Dale’s birthday.”
Lish ruffled her fingers through her auburn hair. “Let’s find a place to sit, shall we?”
The ladies found a table at a local tavern. Karen popped the cork of a bottle of champagne.
Rochelle raised her glass, shifting her gaze from face to face, etching the details of each one into her memory. “To writing challenges and great friends.”
Without warning, the floor rumbled beneath them. Glass shattered.
The bartender screamed. “Earthquake!”
Karen, Lish and Dale vanished amid the rubble.
“No!” Rochelle cried. “The party’s just starting.”
“Honey, wake up.”
Rochelle rolled over and looked up at her husband. “What day is it?”
“Oh crap. It’s April 14th. I forgot to send a card to Dale.”
