The Useless Fairy
Soren held the candlestick high as she crept down the scarlet hallway of the Library of Fact and Fantasy. She paused every few seconds to listen to the sounds around her before she continued. It wouldn’t do to be caught roaming the hallway at night, not since her sister, Sage, had done it and been imprisoned in stone. She’d even lost a wing during the stoning, which was doubly bad. After all, what good was a fairy that couldn’t fly?
No, this injustice needed to be righted and fast. It was the reason she and the rest of their siblings dared the halls at night. They’d find the executioner and bring her to trial or they’d all be turned to stone trying.
This week Write on Edge challenged us to use Clue as inspiration and add the words “library, scarlet, and candlestick” to our stories.
The picture centered above was the #FridayFictioneers prompt hosted by Madison Woods.
As always I welcome constructive criticism. Please, share your thoughts in a comment.
