Challenge found at Terrible Minds by Chuck Wendig. 100 word story using three of either: “enzyme, ivy, bishop, blister or lollipop.”
The autumn afternoon was grey and cold. Abby wore a thick sweater and had a large mug of bishop to warm her.

She and Kathleen were in the backyard talking while preparing her plants for the winter.
“Everyone changes around me,” Kathleen said sourly. “Then they leave me behind. I’m like an enzyme.”
“I have no idea what that means,” Abby said, trimming the tips of the Boston ivy that had crept over the window. “But I’m sure you’re overreacting.”
