Remember a while ago when I asked for story prompts for a sort-of communal writing jam? Yeah, well, neither did I until recently. I had a month to work on this, and so naturally I completely forgot about until the week it was due. University essays all over again. Nevertheless, I figured I’d try my hand at it anyway.
This was the only prompt I received:
She impatiently checked her watch, sighing and rolling her eyes as burning debris rained onto the ground around her.
Many thanks again to Jaina for that prompt.
Short stories are not my strong suit, so it’s probably going to be stupidly rough and less than brilliant. I’ve not written a short story in a long, long time. So, if you’re reading it, feel free to have a good chuckle at my expense.
I tried. Also, I’m terrible at titles.
If you can do better (and I don’t think that’d be difficult), link to your story in the comments!
