“Fireside Meeting After the Holiday Feast” by Friends of the Fireplace (part 2 of 2)

Today’s story is the second and final part of a collaborative piece, with contributions by Renee Carter Hall, Thomas “Faux” Steele, Frances Pauli, Nenekiri Bookwyrm, Ziegenbock, K.C. Shaw, Vincenzo Pasquarella, and Rob MacWolf. The stories presented here all appeared in “Happy Howlidays! A Furry Flash Fiction Christmas Anthology” available from Thurston Howl Publications and edited by Vincenzo Pasquarella.

Last time, a mysterious fellowship of almost-familiar but unnamed storytellers gathered, by more than ordinary means, around the fireplace after a holiday dinner. As they began to exchange stories, a contest emerged, to see who had brought the most bittersweet story that still ended on a hopeful note. But before he began, one of them confessed a concern about the story he was about to tell.

Read by Solomon Harries, the Cuddly Badger Dad, Leuna, your internet half-creature, Dralen, the Dapper Dragonfox, and Khaki, your faithful fireside companion.
