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.

Ha! I love that you answered your riddle. You can link without adding words – just hyperlink a couple of words in your story back to the first piece.
Ahhh…what a great idea – I didn’t think of that! Thanks!
Troll thinks he’s so clever with his riddles. I’m glad she knocked him down a peg.
I love that seething troll. And the solving of riddles. 🙂
I’m glad he’s seething too. I was rooting for her to figure it out.
I really like the continuation of your troll tale. Nicely done! I can’t wait for the next riddle.
Me either. I have no idea where it will go next but this prompt worked perfectly.
I WANT MORE!
I’m sure it’s coming…if the prompts take me that way. 😉
Damn trolls and their riddles! Something aught to be done about such things! Love the continuation of your previous story!!!
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!
These always make me want to know more of the context and surrounding story 🙂
That’s the point!
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
If not biologically than certainly in spirit Annah. 😉 If you click the microstory tag at the top of the post it should pull it up.
Excellent – the plot thickens.
I don’t know what’s going to happen next, but I can’t wait to find out.
Oh! This is the continuation of another one I remember!
Yes…I couldn’t link it because of the word limit…don’t want to break the rules.
