Let's get writing!

For our first Wild Write challenge, I'd like you to write a Shorter than Short Story . This means that within as few words as possible, you will need to come up with a story that follows a few rules.

It should become clearer once you start...

The first challenge rules are:

1. Plotline: The story needs to be about someone finding something that they shouldn't have.

2. Character: At least one character needs to be afraid of the found item for some reason.


Get writing and have fun!

Well done, Travis. I like this. Could be good for a longer story.

Sheer poetry with a hint of danger! Beautifully written, Viv.

This is a great beginning (or end) to a story. The characters surnames wouldn't happen to be "Wayne" and "Grayson" would they? ;)
