Submission to Sammi

I am trying a bit to get back into the writings such as Flash Friday.

This week, I am attempting the prompt of 136 Words exactly, including the prompt word “barricade”.

Thank you for reading.

Help of the Vile

She stepped onto the balcony overlooking the square. Her people, she wasn’t their queen but nonetheless, milled about, oblivious to the danger. How long had she feared this day? How true was the vision? She knew the answer. Regardless, she had to try.

She looked up, as if she could, literally, see the impending doom falling from the heavens. There was no Zeus to stop this, only her tiny body to block the cataclysm.

She began the incantations, putting the ingredients from her vision into the incense burner. She inhaled deeply, continued the old language speech. Her body twisted and lifted into the air.

Her incorporeal form shot through the sky, becoming a barricade to the hurtling meteor. The 300 ton rock deflected, missing Earth. Neither it nor the witch Magnemna would trouble the planet again.

-136 words minus the title

 

Namaste,

Scott
