It’s #FlashFriday again, and the #FridayFictioneers are writing and sharing their 100-word stories over at Madison Woods’ blog. You can check out some of their stories and even share one of your own, if you’re interested.
Mine came to 100 words again this week. Here’s the inspiration image Madison shared with us:
And now for my story!
Two doors. I couldn’t choose.
I stood before a weathered structure beneath a gabled roof, the howls of wild predators escalating from behind. The doors were identical–battered and wooden, likely holding the same destiny–yet somehow I sensed my choice would matter.
Suddenly, the thresholds burst aglow with otherworldly lighting—the left an eerie purple, the right a radiant pink. The wolves’ cries silenced in exchange for cornering growls.
Frantic, I forced the right door open, shutting it just as quickly. When the blinding light subsided I found myself lost in howling woods again.
This time I’d choose purple.
