I’m honoured to be among the many wonderful writers who have so far taken up this 79-word story challenge. It was indeed a challenge, especially since my word count needs to go back to basics and learn to count properly! Enjoy all the stories and many thanks to Chris for staging this challenge.😃

‘Found’ by Danny the Dog
The woods are dark, the cabin isolated.
In the distance, a bird cries into the night.
The only light, the fire in the hearth.
Not far off, a twig snaps underfoot.
Someone softly comes my way.
The dread in me rises.
Have I been found?
I am cut off from running; it is too late for that.
In pensive silence, I await my fate.
The door bursts open, Andrew is silhouetted against the stars.
I so hate birthdays.
I Live Here by Annette Rochelle Aben

A challenge, and congrats to all. What’s the next one?
The next challenge? We’ll see. Thanks for commenting.😄
I enjoyed reading all these stories particularly Doctor. It can’t be easy saying so much in so few words. Look forward to reading more
I too enjoyed reading all the stories and am so impressed by the variety and deft skilful ability in them. I’d never tried this before but will again now.
I loved this Annika. It’s a hard discipline isn’t it, but you managed it beautifully. I’m tempted to have a sab at this myself. Have a great weekend. x
Thank you so much Dorne, so happy you like it and think it works well. Oh, you should definitely give this a go. I honestly enjoyed it so much and makes you really feel part of the community out there. ❤️
Wonderful Annika. The Doctor sketching a twenty year career in a few swift strokes.
Would like to try it just for myself, do not think I could.:)
Thank you Mirja, I’ve never written such short fiction before so a challenge. Now I’m tempted to try for a whole short story based in this short piece…Definitely give it a go yourself, it teaches discipline I reckon. 👍
I really think a full short story based on this charachter and her life would be very
good and very topical too. So just go ahead.
Hope you feature it on your blog.
I got there! 🙂 🙂
Yeah!😀 happy about that.
I do get confused with a reblog. I rather like ‘Found’ but I’ll have to go hunting for your story. What a wonderfully obscure number of words 🙂
I think the odd number got my attention to start with as well. It is a bit of a trek between blogs to get to the whole post but worth it in the end!
I agree 🙂
Great story, Annika. That was fun.
Thank Diana, it was fun to write once I had the main character in my head.
So glad you joined in the fun too Annika 😃
Thank you Crhis for letting me take part and galvanising me to write this piece. 😃
Glad you enjoyed the fun Annika 😀
