I’m trying to keep up on the fiction challenge for this month. Today I’ll post using the photo prompt at Friday Fictioneers by Rochelle Wisoff -Fields

I haven’t posted here for long while I was in my slumber. And before I get into hibernation again I better make good use of the time I have in hand!

So here’s the photo prompt followed by my 100 word story.


I’ll be Free

Not a single person… no visitor!

This is how they treat their princess!

No attendants, no men around.

Doesn’t anyone remember the time when princes and kings flocked my court?

There wasn’t a single damsel more beautiful in the world. And they dared to call me evil?

They were jealous… wretched jealous hidebound priests.

Look at me… my beauty still knows no bounds…not even after thousand years.

You cannot keep me chained here in this isle forever.

I’ll break the shackles… I’ll be free… I’ll wait as long as it takes someone to land here… but I’ll be free.

    Dear Tina,

    I don't think it's a good idea to set this being free. Good story.



    PS There's no 'e' in Wisoff.

    Yeah no way it can be set free.
    And so sorry for the extra e!

    I was wondering what kind of princess this is, being shackled for so long. Maybe a dragon, a goddess, a monster? Very intriguing, great story.

    That raises lots of question about the princess! Nicely done Tina !

    Don't do it, Tina. Don't set her free. There's enough evil in the world without adding one more 🙂

    She is some kind of an evil spirit of an evil princess

    Yup not setting her free for sure
