Every Form of Refuge

I know. This is the second short story posted here with this main theme. AND the second story in which ‘refuge’ is used in the title. What is up with that?! Frankly… I don’t know. Best not to question the muse I ‘spose.
This short story was originally written for a challenge in which no more than 525 words could be used to write a story that included the following elements: silk striped pajamas, an entitled victim, snow drifts, and any part of the lyrics to ‘Lyin’ Eyes’ by The Eagles.

A short story about an evening in the life of a family with young kids – costumes, parties, and sarcasm all rolled into a flash fiction!
The family had a big night planned; the kids were attending a big school party out by the old smokestacks for Halloween and Clair and her husband Ed had graciously volunteered to help.

A short story originally written for a challenge, in which no more that 525 words could be used to write a story that included the following: a woman in a clothes dryer, a wooden hanger, a brush with no bristles, and menstrual cramps.
I hope you enjoy my attempt at a sort of detective drama / mystery!
