#FridayFictioneers – The Hunt

PHOTO PROMPT © J Hardy Carroll

Phina surveyed her kingdom from the tower window as the blade wind pushed chestnut hair back from her sunlit face.  A seemingly perfect day in the kingdom.

There was no sign of the beast.  Maybe it slept the morning away after stalking the kingdom all night.  An opportunity to hunt the beast and rid her kingdom of it once and for all.

Down from the tower, bow strung, Phina moved slow to the beast’s feeding ground in the cold porcelain desert where it slept.

An arrow disappeared into the beast’s fur.  It’s eyes fluttered open, and looked into her’s.

  1. I read it “straight” without “getting” that it the beast a family pet, and enjoyed it that way, too.

    Loved the porcelain desert (did you mean the bathroom? The dish cupboard?)by the time i was in the middle, i had forgotten all about the prompt. You have such a great hand for fantasy and adventure!

    1. Thank you so much! You are too kind!

      Since you asked, the porcelain desert was in my mind the kitchen (where we keep our dog’s food and water bowl). And, you didn’t ask about this one but, the “blade wind” at the start was the ceiling fan.

      So happy you liked it!
