Attack of the Others   1496.02.07  
Creators: Ellen Million (Writer), Elizabeth Barrette (Inspiration)
Shrana tries to tell a story (a drabble).
Posted: 08/23/11      [1 Comment] ~ 100 words.
 

"It was a dark winter night, and the Others were coming."

Ularki trembled. Tekura put a comforting arm around her.

Shrana continued in dire tones, "Outside, the rangers stood guard, readying their slings, watching the sky."

"You're good with the sling," Tekura reassured Ularki.

"Bad Others!" Ularki chewed on a finger.

"You're scaring Ularki," Amarv said, looking frightened himself.

"The Others came closer, lower..."

"Let Karavai tell it, he tells nicer stories," Amarv pouted.

"I want to know what happens next!" Tekura said.

"They destroyed the village and everyone died." Shrana stomped off in a sulk; telling stories was hard.

Author's Notes

This was written during the July 2011 Muse Fusion, prompted by Elizabeth Barrette and featuring characters she has developed. The form is a 'drabble,' a story of exactly 100 words... which is harder than it sounds!
