I read various blogs and came across a writing challenge. The challenge is to write a 99 word complete story based on a prompt. The site is called Carrot Ranch.
Here is my entry based on the prompt for Feb. 22: Unicorn. Entries are due by Feb. 27.
The large animal lumbered along slowly. It’s strides shaking the ground with each step.
I took aim and fired a shot. Missed.
He looked up, noticing the noise and spotted me.
His body turned to face me. Dipping his head, his single horn pointed directly at me.
A snort and he began a full-out run straight at me.
The ground shook under my feet. Dust flew everywhere.
Another shot, this time hitting the horn in the front of his head. It didn’t slow him down a bit.
I tried to reload but it was way too late.
