Curses and Timing

He should have never been there in the first place

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.

Shoving the window open, Tess gulped in air. The prince’s pounding below beat with her pulse. “Lady?” her butler asked behind her.

Four hours and he hadn’t given up. Not that he would. Not with his reason stolen.

She felt a hand grip her shoulder. “Tess, the witch arrives soon. If she finds our guest. . .”

“She’d take him. Just as the rest.” Tess snapped the window closed. “He should have never been there in the first place.”

“But he was.” Simple words, but no simple solution. Still, Tess wouldn’t let the witch take him. She’d stop her. Somehow.

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.
