The house wasn't the same to her any more

What is WonHundred Word Wednesdays? It’s when a group of amazing authors and I write 100 word stories all based on the same short prompt and post them. All the variations are fun to read. Here is my entry for the week.

The house chimed incessantly at her and still she pressed her hand against the door’s frame, hesitating crossing the threshold. Five years she’d stayed away unable to forget.

The house wasn’t the same to her any more. It had been her refuge. Constructed by her parents as a spark of life on this barren rock. They’d wanted her safe, hidden away from the Klarizi.

Their hope had failed.

She’d escaped their siege. How was still baffled her. She’d promised her she’d be here today though. The house’s chime changed. Before her, a form a light to shape. Her mother’s shade.

Don’t forget to read the other’s takes on the prompt. Theirs go up throughout the day.
