Hi everyone, and thanks for coming over.

A few of the participants in the war are already posting, so I decided to post today and maybe once more before Friday, when it ALL happens. It's a bit daunting, so I'm easing myself in. As some of you know, I am certainly no stranger to the drabble format, but to get this all out in a weekend … WOW … intimidated doesn't even begin to cut it.

What to expect from me: 100 word chapters. I'm a stickler for numbers and each chapter will be 100 EXACTLY. Expect around 75 chapters—give or take a few either side. Yep, I'm still writing and fiddling, but I have faith I'll get it all out.

Love and thanks to Beans827—thanks so much for the beta. I do tend to fiddle though after the fact, so any errors in the final edit are mine alone; edwardsisobel—just for being you and doing a bit of everything; Pyejammies for pre-reading; and D. Kinney for pre-reading and making a kick-arse banner.

Disclaimer: SM owns … yada yada … My only claim is to this plot.

Here is the group intro. Please read it. The first chapter of 'Just a Minute Longer' follows it.

Time for this month's Drabble War! It's all in good fun, and please remember this. If there's something you don't like, just click the little "x" in the corner. We have three days, April 20th to 22nd, to post an entire story. Drabble = Short chapters - you know this by now ;) While it's originally supposed to be 100 words per drabble, there won't be any heads rolling for breaking that "rule". Again, this is for fun.

Yes, this is it. It kind of gets lost amongst all the guff, but subsequent chapters will stand alone.


Gray buildings, gray sky, gray slushy snow…

Bella journeyed down the cold, lonely street on her way to the train station. It was just before 7:30 on this blustery January morning, and she had her woolen trench coat hugged tightly around her body while she walked as quickly as she possibly could, trying hard to avoid the treacherous patches of ice that littered the sidewalk.

Even with her attention focused on the path in front of her, she could make out the grayness of the landscape; it was rather depressing really.

Rounding the corner she looked up, stopping herself short.

Thanks for reading.

Love is always appreciated.

'Till next time.
