A Riddle Solved

Her hands reached. No ring.

Pause…eyes closed. Think!

Yes! Her eyes opened wide and she pushed several meters back to the surface.

“Water rings!” she shouted, treading.

The Troll frowned as the lake magically drained.

“Next one is harder…” he seethed.

      It needed to be done. And, quite frankly, I knew she was strong enough of a character to beat this one. I’m happy she figured it out. Hopefully the next one is challenging…but solvable. Thanks for reading!

  6. Looks like I have some work to do! I didn’t see the previous piece…looks like I’m going swimming through your posts! LOL

    And rule follower…Just one more in our parallels… Are you sure we’re not long lost sisters?! <3
