Being the first to take up the challenge, I have written the first 250 words of a story
where the second displayed artwork on Yikici's blog inspired me!
As the artwork is protected by copyright, I cannot display them on my post, you will need to head over to Yikici's blog to take a look! Maybe you would like to accept the challenge too!
The last thing I remember, I was sitting with my sister, competing against her in a game of Final Fantasy, when somehow quite inexplicably we had found ourselves in a hallway of a mysterious house. At first we looked at one another in astonishment, before accepting our situation. We seemed to be stuck. We had no idea how we had arrived or how we were going to get out and if we would be able to return back to our home. Being only children, we were both feeling frightened and confused.
Cautiously, my sister stepped on the thick, red carpet which ran the length of the long, dark hall ahead of us. The hallway was lined with many closed doors and I wondered what could be lurking behind each one. Linking hands, we slowly made our way along, until we saw just ahead of us a large, winding staircase leading to a lower level of the house. We stopped and l looked across at my sister as if to ask, should we go down there? She shook her head and pointed to a door at the far end of the hall, where a sliver of bright light was escaping from beneath it.
One step at a time we continued along the hall towards the door, my sister never letting go of my hand for a moment. Just as we neared the staircase I had pointed to, we heard a loud noise from behind the door we had been heading towards.
