It was time. She'd fought against it for so long

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. In honor of the sumemr heat, I’ll be adding dragon references into my entries. Dragons make everything better. Here’s this week’s entry.


She stopped on the first step to the guardians’ lair. They who were known, appreciated, and feared. They who burned her dreams, bidding her descend where mortal courage quelled.

This night their strength had drawn her in but a shift. Still fear chilled her blood as stone froze her feet.

Her hand rested on a carving drawing her attention. Though stone, the guardian stared back. Jagged teeth, spread wings, and clothed in flame.

Determination burned the fear from her veins. It was time. She’d fought against it for so long. Tonight she would answer their call, joining them as guardian.


Now see the rest!

  1. They visit her dreams? How cool.
    Will she become a dragon? Or are the guardians those who watch over the dragons? (So fun!)

  2. Oooh, Guardian’s sound cool, and creepy and awesome, and scary, and I want to know more.
