In the Dust

She moved to stop him in his tracks

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.

The ground heaved beneath her. Slamming her arm across her mouth, Sophia breathed through her shirt as dust chocked the air. She squinted through the grit. Even with this, how could the creature conceal itself?

There. Light refracted off the creature’s hide revealing him writhing against the ground, throwing up the dust cloud. Smart. Sophia was Clutchden’s knight, dragon or no. She moved to stop him in his tracks.

The creature snapped as she approached. Her red armor must gleam as much or more than his hide. Roaring, the dragon leaped to the sky for refuge. “Next time,” she vowed.

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.
