Not going as planned (Friday Fictioneers)

I force my way into the wood-paneled room. All that is inside is a spinning wheel. Damn it. This was where they’d been holding him. It’s what I’d been told when tasked with the mission to rescue him from this timeline. I spin, still puffing from my mad dash, blade held down and dripping blood on the dusty floor. Now what? My side aches where I was slashed on my violent entrance. Kings’ chamber? Servant quarters? Dungeon.

Probably the dungeon.

I pop a wound pill and gasp as the injury closes. I raise my sword. Right. On with it then.

  1. It’s a trap. The dungeon holds horrors yet to unfold. A timeline delay has caused some problems here. Great ScFi.

  2. A breathless pace and a whole world evoked, Laurie

  3. Dear Laurie,

    A wound pill? Wouldn’t that be nice? Lot of tension with no resolution. Good one.



    • Oh yes a wound pill would be marvellous. My wish for the future. I gashed my ankle… 8 weeks later it still hurts in certain shoes! Oh for a wonder pill!

  4. A brief glimpse into a dramatic story. Nicely done.

  5. Absolutely, on with it. Always on with it. 🙂

  6. The work of a hunter (bounty?) is never easy!

  7. Sounds like a great start to a novel

  8. Dramatic, atmospheric, a terrific tale.

  9. Not sure there is a beginning, body, and end to this story. More like a random paragraph from the middle of a horror story. Other commentators are calling it a tale or story so I guess I’m the one who is missing the point.

  10. Wooo I like this! Great reading 🙂

  11. Oh, a great action scene, this makes me want to know more about the timeline and their missions.

  12. I like how you designed this interlude in the action. Neat concept of wound pills.
