Darkness in Light

The old woman's fire was nearly out

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.

Drumming his fingers, McGill inspected his… guest. The old woman’s fire was nearly out. Her eyes were dull and stared blankly. He’d break her and his Masters would have the knowledge they craved. Then they’d both die.

“Come, Radah,” he offered the honorific. “Why fight what comes? The Masters must control all here.”

She shook her head. “They control darkness.”

“Darkness covers all eventually.”

Her eyes shifted revealing her clear fire burned still. “Darkness will not cover all. It flees before the smallest flame.”

McGill swallowed and nodded. No she would not break. She’d break them and he’d aid her.

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.
