Scene: Lucie Bellerose is rescued by a familiar face. 🐇+🧙♂= 🐢
Exhausted, I brushed off the forest detritus and sat on the felled log. I was cold, lost, and alone. I was no safer here than I was in *spoiler*. In fact, I assumed I was no longer in *spoiler* – I had no idea where I was. Hanging my head, my hands rested on my knees. I didn’t even have the energy to summon my witchline for help. I swallowed hard. My throat begged for water.
I heard the rumble before I saw headlights swing around the bend in the road ahead. An ancient red truck jostled its way over the ruts in the dirt road, slowing as it neared.
The dusky light making its way through the leaves overhead did little to reveal who sat in the driver’s seat as the truck wheezed to a stop. The window complained with a whine as it lowered halfway.
I blinked at the old man.
“Well, what have we here?” His face pushed through the open portion of the window, his long beard folding under his chin as it came in contact with the glass under it. “The Bellerose Witch, sitting in my woods.”
Struggling to my feet, I huffed out a weak laugh. “I didn’t think you drove.”
“I prefer my horse and wagon, but I evolve with the times,” the Tortoise replied.
🎶 This writing challenge runs from May 15 – 28! Stay tuned as tomorrow the next prompt is: Makes you cry. That post is now available – click here!
