I'll find her and bring her home, I promise

Welcome to Wednesday’s flash fiction wherein I write as part of a group based on the same short prompt and post them. Here’s my contribution.

I slogged forward as rain wormed through my clothing. The citadel’s light, though close, was shrouded. The storm wouldn’t even give up that. Only my words to chase me as I chased her.

I’ll find her and bring her home, I promise.

A futile promise. As was the hunt. Water would wash her away tracks. Unless, they entered a pit burrowing into the ground first.

She’d entered, not that I could see her or the end, but it was sheltered. Probably why she’d entered. At least there wasn’t sign of beasts. Forward then. Crouching, I followed Alice down the hole.

Don’t forget to read the other’s takes on the prompt. More stories go up throughout the day. Be sure to check our page on Facebook for updates as everything becomes available: WonHundred Words.
