Here is our prompt for our 100 word story this week: 

WonHundred Wednesday 4_9


I slogged through the tropical wilds, pack held above my head and water up to my thighs. Hopefully I had everything tucked into my boots. If not, I’d be pulling leeches off of places I’d rather not think about. Mosquitoes the size of small airplanes ate away at me.

          My sister’s voice echoed in my mind. “That’s what happens when you follow your heart.”


          Ahead, in the trees, there was a burst of colorful feathers as my elusive subject made her appearance. My breath caught and I stood in awe, joy spreading through me.

          “Yes. This is what happens.”

  2. so fun. I want to see it too. I think slugging through the swampy jungle would possibly be worth it for that.

    Awww… so not what would happen if I followed mine (but I’m more of an indoor girl). I loved the story though 🙂 Great job!
