A Dish Best Served Baked, by Bruce Arbuckle

The cookies smell good. Janice packs them into a tin. A housewarming present. A little late? Perhaps. The newcomer wasn’t welcomed correctly. But Peggy overstepped. Janice organises things in this community. There’s no room for competition. The empty rat poison bottle is binned and Janice takes her gift next door.

A 50-word story written by Bruce Arbuckle, inspired by the Freewriters Writing Prompt on Hive, “community organizer”
