Today's prompt was: As soon as she walked in, she felt the tension
As I started writing it, I was kinda surprised where it went, but kinda pleased with it anyway.
Hope you enjoy it.
As soon as she walked in, she felt the tension of the
tripwire. Her heart stopped for a moment and she breathed out. She pulled her
foot back as gently as she could, but the click of the pin being pulled echoed
in her ears, sounding louder than the gunfire in the streets below.
If it was anything like the traps she’d set for the enemy
she had moments to come to terms with her life.
Not that she cared to see any of it flash before her eyes.
Except for that one brief moment she’d seen the chosen one.
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.
