A to Z Challenge { C }

We interrupt the regularly scheduled blog posts  for April's A to Z Challenge!
I'm testing my writing skills with fiction.
These may consist of an opening paragraph, or might even end up as an entire short-story.
I have no idea where my fingers and keyboard will take me
as I'm inspired with each day's corresponding letter.
Take the journey with me!
I look forward to your feedback.
Today's letter:  C
 

Cassandra cachinnated at the calumny her life had come to be.  That causerie cantratice was cautelous at best. She, with her cebocephalic looks and cymotrichous locks, Charmaine could ruin anything. Oh, Cassandra wanted to believe this cacaesthesia was only conjecture; however she knew last evening's calamity was cacotopian at best. As she considered the next course, Cassandra craved the ability to respond with charientism instead of curling up in chickenheartedness.
