Rory’s Story Cubes Challenge: Week 12

It’s Wednesday, which means it’s time for this week’s Story Cubes Challenge. It’s also the birthday of the other bookworm cousin in my family — Happy Birthday, Katie — and the Fourth of July. Too bad there’s no fireworks cube. :)

Just a reminder: Please post a link to your challenge response in comments so we can all see how different people tackle the same prompt. Happy writing!
