A young journalist who thinks she’s about to write a quick food truck review, observes something unusual about the truck, giant bugs that only she seems to see.
This story is from Year 8, The Year of Revisitation
I revisit one of the stories I’ve already written, and write a new standalone story connected to or inspired by the existing one through a character, a place, an object, a continuation of events (okay, sequel), and so on.
Everyone is raving about this food truck that serves hand pies. But the truck is swarming with bugs that no one seems to see, except for a young journalist, who takes a closer look, and realizes…those aren’t bugs.
This story is connected to the Year Seven story entitled “Welcome to Thoughtsburger,” in which a young journalist follows a lead straight into her dreams, and to a diner that serves platters made from thoughts. In this new story, she finds herself in the midst of another atypical food-related story, a food truck feud, with a magical twist?
[Video description: No sound. Duration is 11 seconds. Digital drawing of a young woman with a ponytail and glasses, seen from the waist up, centered and facing forward. She’s holding a hand pie in her left hand. Her right hand is in the pocket of her hoodie. A trail of colorful sparkles crosses in front of her and leads to a burst of light just above her head and to her right. The words “Short Story” are displayed in front of the image near the bottom. Below it is written the story’s genre, “Fairy Tale.” As the video progresses, the words fade away and are replaced by the story’s title, “Pocket Pies From the Pocket Dimension,” which is surrounded by a rounded corner background that expands out. Meanwhile, steam rises from the hand pie and the burst of light releases sparkles. The words vanish. The website name “storyfeather.com” fades into view at the bottom of the screen.]
Genre: Fairy Tale, Fantasy
