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.
“This is advice from the Master.” The words roared over the courtyard and conversations dropped off. I shoved my hair back and turned to face the source with the rest. “Renegades have been stopped beyond Jadin. The Master protects you. The Master grants all.”
Ducking my head, I repeated the final phrase before turning to disappear into the crowd heart racing.
“Jadin,” Clar whispered excitedly next to me. His hand gripped my elbow. “That isn’t two provinces over.”
“They were stopped.” I yanked my arm away checking that no one had noticed. We had to get out before they arrived.
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.
