WonHundred Word Wednesday: “There was a strange wailing sound coming from the next room.” August 6, 2014

This is the day again, Wednesday! – different authors all writing a 100 word story based on the same prompt. This week’s prompt is: “There was a strange wailing sound coming from the next room.” This one is my take:


Steam vented from the pipes overhead, adding  humidity and heat to the metallic  scented tunnels. Dice pushed through her fatigue and plodded along.

                Lights flickered intermittently through the confined space. They illuminated several doors. Dice ducked into one room, hoping to escape the temperature. There was a strange wailing sound coming from the next room. A closer listen near the door revealed the mechanical sound of a motor. The wailing was the screech of an engine belt in need of oil. Hope rekindled itself.

                The mission ran through her exhausted mind.

Find the generator.

Shut it down.

Free us all.


Now you can read the others’- enjoy!

    Very good descriptions. You can understand just how miserable living there is.

    Nice. She’s reached her goal and can free everyone. Until something gets in her way… This is a great opening and could see this story continuing on with a great adventure.
