Dresden Files Ficlet: Oncoming Storm

Title: Oncoming Storm

Fandom: Dresden Files

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Murphy

Rating: G

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Something bad is coming.

Word Count: 150

Written For: [personal profile] beccastareyes’s prompt ‘Dresden Files, Murphy, storm clouds were brewing and all anyone could do was try to shove others out from their umbrella,’ at [community profile] fic_promptly

Disclaimer: I don’t own The Dresden Files, or the characters. They belong to Jim Butcher.

Murphy hadn't needed Dresden to tell her something bad was coming; the whole of Chicago could feel it, a heavy, brooding, intangible presence hanging over the city. She didn't know what it was, but that didn't bother her anywhere near as much as the fact that Dresden didn't know either.

Whatever it was, no one could take much more; people were rapidly reaching breaking point, their tempers starting to fray. Already the police had their work cut out for them dealing with an ever-growing number of calls reporting domestic arguments and fights.

Tension fairly crackled in the air; the storm would have to break soon, and when it did, it would be every man and woman for themselves, taking refuge wherever they could find it and shoving others out to take their chances. Survival of the fittest.

She hoped Dresden had an umbrella, because she wasn’t about to share hers.

The End
