August 5, 2015: As the dream faded, she chased it, forlorn
When I saw this prompt, I read it fast and at a glance making me think the last word forlorn said something different. See if you can figure out what word I thought it was as you read the results of this prompt.
As the dream faded, she chased it, forlorn. She raised her head and reflected on the loss. She’d always wanted one of those fascinating creatures as a pet, but they were extinct now. She shook her head, not understanding how they could have been wiped out so completely.
When the unicorns first came to this land it didn’t take long to gain control. The humans had been hunted for sport, then in an attempt to fight off the unicorns they’d dropped bombs, killing themselves as well.
Such a loss.
In the dream, the human was female and heavy with child.
