The Girl Who Lived (1)

I saw the picture for this week’s Picture It & Write challenge and before I knew it, I had a new serial on my hands. Since I’m about to move again, this is a good thing – it means I know what I’ll post over the next few days.

Hope you enjoy the story.

Part I: The Hermit

The metal steps are vibrating underneath my pounding feet. I’m going to bang on the hermit’s door in a second, so there’s no point in being quiet. It’s counterintuitive, going up a metal staircase, but it’s better than making it in the plains. The rumble of faraway thunder makes me climb faster.

I’ve survived an electrical storm before, but I’m not in the mood for fate-tempting. If he doesn’t let me in, I’ll find out if I’ll survive another.

Bang, bang, bang. The static that means lightning is about to strike fills the air.

Please, let him open the door.

    1. I have a small child and a cat, they’ll get in the way of character takeovers 😀
      But thank you, it’s good to know!


  1. Great photo – no wonder you were inspired. And hooray for another serial! And intriguing start, though she better hurry up or the lightning’ll strike and the story will be over before its begun

    1. Yeah, the photo is brilliant. I had half the story after looking at it for a few seconds. Would have been stupid not to use it…
      Thank, Lynn, I hope you’ll enjoy watching it unfold.

    1. Well, I’m away myself at the moment, and it’s easier to write a serial and keep it alive while I’m busy visiting family than come up with something new each day… Glad you like the beginning 🙂
