WonHundred Word Wednesday: Legend of the well

It's Wednesday, and I actually wrote one this week! Check it out:

The prompt: There was a legend about the well in the garden

My story:

There was a legend about the well in the garden, and Gwen believed it. So much that she’d talked herself into walking to the well at midnight in January. So much that she’d coaxed her bare feet onto the cold stone wall. So much that she’d risk everything for hope of happiness.

Just one more step and she’d be free. Free from the sideways glances, free from the criticism. Free to make her life her own. One more step and her dreams could be hers.

Gwen closed her eyes, dropped the token into the well and stepped into the abyss. 

As always, check out the other stories!

  1. I love this. It makes you wonder what will come next and what promises the well holds.

  2. Love it! Especially all the sensory details!
