Look! It is the final flash fiction of the whole year! 😉 The prompt this time is “The old house, with its wildly overgrown garden, was silent, secretive. . .”
What does that prompt make you think of? Here is my take:
The old house, with its wildly overgrown garden, was silent, secretive, and perfect for its purpose. People avoided it, either for fear of getting snagged in the brambles, or for other fears. Ones they couldn’t really put their finger on.
The gate was hidden in the center of the house, right on the magical ley line, where it would have the most power. Visitors from the other side could come in and out of our world without notice. Only the gatekeeper tracked their progress and their purpose.
It was also her job to keep out those who would do harm.
Now you can see what my friends did with that prompt :).
