Today’s prompt for our 100 word story is: “It was just for one night.”

WonHundred Wednesday 7_9


Princess Kiva clutched her growling stomach. The sound echoed alarmingly in the silent tomb. It was just for one night, but the kingdom depended upon it. Potential rulers had failed in the past.

She had gone through every purification ritual and now she needed to spend the entire night amongst her ancestors—the wisdom of the ages—to prove she could lead the country.

Otherwise there would be civil war.

She settled down against the cold stone of the tomb. There was an errant sound. A hiss, and dry scales brushing through dust.

Had other ancestors failed?

Or been assassinated?


Now you can see what everyone else did with the same prompt!
