WonHundred Word Wednesday

Another Wednesday, another Writing prompt:

In all the years I've lived here, I never once called this place my home.

In all the years I’ve lived here, I never once called this place my home. They say home is where your heart is. I gave mine to someone once. He said it was just for a little while. That he’d give it right back. But he kept it. Locked in a box. Now my step mother opens the box every now and then and strokes it. She’s changed since I last saw her. Creepier. Lonely. She never comes out of the castle anymore, just stares in her mirror.

Oh well. I’ve got a meal to prepare for seven hungry men.

  1. What a fun take on Snow White and the Seven Dwarves! I wonder what the repercussions of having the Huntsman take her heart would be.

  2. That's a great take on snow white, and the prompt.

  3. This brings up a lot of great story questions. Who is he? How did it happen? What does he think now?...

  4. This seriously left me aching for more. I like the Snow White twist.

  5. So creepy! I love it. I love that we can see the character of Snow here. That she did give her heart to the Huntsman. That there seems to be sympathy for her stepmother. And that, even though she doesn't have a heart, she's still taking care of the seven dwarfs. I've always loved the character of Snow, and I really like what you did with her, and with the story.
