I have really wanted to write some micro fiction put out a call for people to challenge me. This is my response to the first prompt I was given – Dinosaurs & Melodrama.
I couldn’t help where it ended up… once I got started it was, well it was inevitable! (If you know, you know) I hope that you enjoy it. I’ll work on getting one done a day 🙂
Steg grazed lush grass; revelled in the scent of fern, baked yellow dirt and coming rain. Allosaurus dozed beneath the nearest tree. They were greatest allies and truest friends. Thunder rumbled.
Steg looked up, content.
‘Good friends, stay truest,’ he smiled.
Allosaurus flexed. She stretched. She grimaced.
‘I’m hungry,’ the sky had darkened.
The herds had moved away.
His heart thumped with uneasy horror.
Allosaurus grinned. A blaze of light set the clouds on fire.
‘Curse you,’ Steg started to run. He tripped, he tumbled.
Allosaurus approached, teeth bared.
‘Curse your sudden yet inevitable betrayal!’
And then they all exploded.
Do you want to provide a prompt? Just comment with me a word like ‘Vampire’ or ‘Moose’ and a genre. Like Moose – Horror! And I’ll do my best to come up with a story of 100 words or less.
Or do you want to join in the challenge! If you do, then post your micro-fiction of 100 words or less below. I challenge you to use the prompt of ‘Daffodil’ and the genre of Sci-fi. Have fun! I would love to see some responses.
