Here’s my first weekly Flash Fiction Challenge. This image is from Watanska at DeviantArt.com.
I will be posting a photo I grab off the internet and will challenge bloggers to write a relatively short flash fiction piece inspired by the photo. While there are no style or definitive word limits, I suggest trying to keep your stories to under 300 words.
If this picture inspires you and you wish to participate, please write your post, use the tag #FFFC, and link back to this post.
And most important, have fun.
Stepping daintily over the jungle floor Kira, the princess of the Druids’ came near the stream. The deer and other small creatures were captivated by the music of the flute. She was so lost in her own thoughts that she never noticed how one of the stag was venturing quite menacingly towards her. The stag, bearing huge antlers came very near to her, so near that she could feel one of the antler piercing through her dress and hurting her leg. She stopped playing the flute and in confusion looked at the stag. But it no longer was a stag. It was changing its form and a devilish figure was emerging. She uttered a scream and called for one of her people for help. But the devil had her in his hold, a sharp long knife held to her throat. The guards came running to help the princess but were held at bay by the threat of harm to her by the devil.
“What do you want ” She asked the devil. ” Just your life” he replied. Kira tried to wriggle free but he tightened his hold and almost suffocated her. In desperation she pleaded to him to spare her life. The devil pretended to consider this appeal, but he had no intention of sparing her. Right at that moment, Elfred, who had sneaked behind the devil shot his arrow though it’s heart with such skill as not to hurt his beloved Kira. The devil went up in smoke with a shrill warning that he will return soon to accomplish his mission
