A Winter Walk

I rethought this microstory after writing it. The “Ultimate” question for this week’s microstory prompt is “Where is the Ring?” This 42 word post talks of many rings…not just the one ring…and it’s more of a scene than a story. Thought I might post it for you anyway as I enjoyed the imagery it evoked.

The cool, moist fog hangs close.

Her pace quickens as we draw near.

The wet leaves fall off my shoes as I sink into the sand.

She charges as I throw, rings spreading out from her body in the previously still lake.
