Fic Prompts: Strange Magic Monday
“There it goes! Don’t let it get away!”
Sunny paused at the mouth of the alley, blinking, just in time for a small bundle of filthy gray fur to go rocketing past him. Seconds later it was followed by a man who was all elbows and knees, with cheekbones that looked like they’d probably stabbed people before and would stab again.
“What on earth-?” Sunny sputtered, dodging nimbly up onto a fire escape. “Is that a raccoon?!”
“That,” announced the gangly man grandly, “is my nemesis. His name is Imp. He’s pure evil.”
Sunny swallowed a chuckle. “Aww, look at him though! He can’t be that ba- wait. Is that my wallet?!”
“Told you.” The grim man launched over a trash can and made a grab for the raccoon. He missed and took off down the sidewalk after it.
“What the- Hey! Strider! Wait for me!”
All in all not how Sunny had thought he’d be spending his Saturday.
