By now you know the rules, and if not, please do visit Rochelle at Addicted to Purple HERE. A special thanks to Sandra Crook for the use of her photograph today!
Shivering she got up and looked around. She was ravenous, and she wasn’t alone.
The man there with her seemed as bewildered as she felt. Looking about, she could see no others, yet sensed that they were being watched. To what purpose?
Startled, the man quickly turned. “When did you get here?”
“I was about to ask you the same.” she chuckled.
“I can’t remember.”
“Mm. Same here.” She was salivating.
“You hungry too? Shall we fi …”
“STARVING! “ she roared, and ate him.
Looking into the habitat, Echerthwat mumbles, “Ti wlaays ercesp em tuo ehnw hse soed ttha.”
*Anagram challenged? Email me here (farmlet(at)att(dot)net) 😉
NOTICE: I’ve never done anagrams before, but needed a way to mimic an unknown language without offending any other language speaker. 😉 I also needed it to be fairly easy for my readers to translate and gain the meaning from that last sentence. Unfortunately, due to the nature of my story set up, I think the name of the last character “GartfAAnale” was throwing everyone off, so I changed it. 😯
Go HERE for more fun and inspired writings on today’s prompt!

Creeps me out, too, darling. I think this might just be one of the most original things I’ve read in a long time. The only one I didn’t get was the name: GartfAAnale — will this prevent me from fully enjoying this piece?
Nah, you know how names are these days. You can spell them anyway you like and get away with it. Although this one was completely made up. 😉
And thank you, Aheenl!
Royu Ewlecom, Garlind.
Well, I saw that coming, but I still enjoyed it…
Nice, when there’s a feed involved, creeps me out though. Well done.
Thank you, Summerstommy2. Dlga ot wkon uyo tge ti!
You need to be careful, you might end up writing like that permanently! (That’s the kind of thing my Gran would have said.) Very clever and unique. Well done.
Saundra, you have obviously never seen me type! 😉 As for your Gran, she was of the same era as mine. She was always at the ready with similar admonishments. I hated it then, but I would love to hear one now…
Glad you liked The Pets.
Tis a dangerous habit to get everyone into. Thank me now for not mixing up these words and forcing your mind to twist their way through them. Loved your story, Still unwinding.
Sit a dab abhit, utb ‘sti eyas twhi ym yptinge klsils. 😉

Yevr oodg. (That’s driving Spell Check mad!!)
Tanhk oyu, Netanj! (Poor Spell Check. It will get over it. 😉 )
I used to love to do anagrams but I find once you get out of doing them you lose your skill. Enjoyable concept and I love that she ate him! Haha
Dawn, I’ve never done them, but needed a way to mimic an unknown language without offending any other language speaker. At least I hope I didn’t offend anyone! 😉 I had fun with this one, and I’m glad you liked it.
Oh, very cool. I didn’t realize that. Thanks for sharing that deeper meaning with me.
That made me laugh! Great, thanks!
😀 So glad to make you laugh, Anna, and thank you!
I am NOT going to email for help! It creeps me out that I can’t figure out the name though …
How clever you are; in so many ways!
HAHAHAHAAA! I cheated a tiny bit. The name is actually two words moshed together… will that help you? 😉
I’m the only one who can’t figure this out, aren’t I? I’ve got the first word (and had it yesterday but couldn’t figure out a one word name for all the letters). NOW I can’t figure out the other word. I’ll keep working on it!
No! Judging by the lack of response to the particular FF story, you most certainly are not!
A few of my other intrepid friends freely admit to being stumped. I will tell you if you ask me to. 😀
A new take on ‘fast food’: eat anything, eat it live, eat it raw. 🙂
Yup! Express dining, Ann! 😉
Lol, I tried but I just ca'(t do it.. I am going to practice..!
Enjoy you day Lynda
Chantal, I’m sorry to make it so hard for you. I never considered my foreign audience when I wrote this.
CLUE: If you look in the some of the comments, then you will find that some my friends used a few of the decoded words in their responses.
Does this help? 😉
What fun… though frustrating! You are one clever girl, my friend!
Sorry to frustrate you, Lori. As I told Dawn, I’ve never done anagrams before, but needed a way to mimic an unknown language without offending any other language speaker. 😉 I also needed it to be fairly easy for the readers to translate and gain the meaning. Were you finally able to decode the sentence?
Oh, this is funny! I like your new “language.”
Thank you, Patti, I am glad you enjoyed it! 😀
Did ok except for the person’s name (just too tired to keep at it…)
Startling ending – GREAT job once again: )
Good! And thanks, Deb!
