Etkin’s Price

His mood matched their weather: inclement

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.

Kiana shivered glancing up the mountainside. Etkin’s hold was up there, somewhere. She was to face him alone and his mood matched their weather: inclement.

Feet stamped behind her, impatient, crunching the abnormal snow. Too long since Etkin’s last gift the elders had pronounced as the drifts piled high. Kiana would appease him they’d decided. Of course. She a spinster at 26 with no more family to speak for her. No lose.

At least she wouldn’t have to endure their whispers anymore. Good riddance to them, Etkin couldn’t be worse than the last three years. She took a step forward.

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.
