100WC – Special Prompt #6 – William C

Darkness surrounded me, I could barely even see my own hands. Creeping through the echoing hallway, a dying lantern was illuminating the hall. As I continued through, I saw it. I couldn’t describe it if I tried, but it was something that had been forgotten for a long time…     

I thought it wouldn’t notice me, so I tried to creep past, but the damned floorboards gave it away. it sprinted toward me, reaching me in an instant, looming over me ominously. it had to be at least 10 foot tall!

With a loud scream, I turned around and ran away…

  1. Hi William C, I liked your story because it was very descriptive and exciting.
    My favourite part was the second paragraph.
    I also liked the sentence ‘a dying lantern was illuminating the hall’.
    From Tyler.

  2. Hello William,

    Your story drew me in from the very first sentence. Your use of words to describe the scene (imagery) helped create pictures in my mind as I wondered what the forgotten creature was. Left with one unfinished sentence, we will never know what it was and if you survived.
    I like mysteries.
