This Campaign will run from August 22nd to October 31st. hosted by @RachaelHarrie
This week’s challenge is to write a 200 word story that starts with “The door swung open…” To add an extra bit on the challenge I will end the story with “The door swung shut.” And I have made the story exactly 200 words (not including the title)
The door swung open and throwing her hands to her mouth was all Marie could do to hold back the whimper that urged to escape from her throat. He had come for her.
Micha’s raged eyes were like tidal waves ready to consume her in an instant, “Marie, it’s time to go.”
He doesn’t understand that she wasn’t taken she escaped. It doesn’t matter his delusions are too strong for any words or actions to change his mind.
To him, Marie was his.
Micha’s hand gripped her arm and tugged her forward. Her weight jolted backwards in a struggle to wretch herself free, “You’re not responding well to this situation. I know you’re scared but this is the only way to save you.” He pulled her close to his taunt body his arms enveloping her as he brushed the hair out of her face.
“Where are you taking me?” Marie closed her eyes a single prayer in her mind that he would come to his senses.
“To Hades. It’s the only place I know I can protect you.” His dark black wings expand behind him as he carries Marie out the door. Wind cascaded behind them the door swung shut.
