For this weeks Flash Fiction Foray Matt over at The Book Blogger very kindly used my music suggestion. Considering I had put it forward you would have thought I would have had a clue what to write, but no, it’s going to be as much of a surprise for me as it is for you.
If you would like to join in, clicking the link at the start of this paragraph will take you to this weeks challenge, or clicking HERE will take you to all the relevant information you require. It’s only 100 little words :)
Here is my entry.
Music filled the forest as the mist crept ever closer, it’s cold fingers reaching from the sky to the very blades of grass beneath Polly’s feet.
‘I don’t like this’ said Teddy. ‘We’ll only go a little further.’
‘It has to be around here somewhere’ said an exasperated Polly.
And it was, it was just around the bend, a little door at the foot of an old and withering tree, with pebbles for a path.
‘Are you ready Teddy, because once we go through, we can never come back?’
‘I’m ready, there’s a new world coming and it’s not good.’
I’d a couple of ideas for this one, I may or may not do another one. In the end though I chose my preferred characters, Polly and Teddy who I have had adventures with before.
It’s not as easy as it first appears this malarky, but after much thought and editing as far as I know I came in right on the 100 words!
