For 100 consecutive days I will write and post a short story (about 100 words) incorporating a randomly selected word from Afterliff: A new dictionary of things there should be words for.

Today’s word:
eccup n.
The mug that nobody uses because Grandad once kept his false teeth in it.

Tomorrow’s word:
cashel n.
The bowl in which small useless foreign coins are kept.
