Rosie Lane, per the judgemaster: I loved her story, she packed a lot into so few words, the story gave me the chills!
The girl sits on the opposite bank and watches me through hair that curls like water weed. Her bare skin glistens with the pond water that drips onto the grass.
“Are you a witch?” I ask. “Here to ensorcel me?”
She tilts her head to listen to the sound and smiles at me.
“Will you talk?”
She smiles again, showing needle-sharp teeth made to tear and rend, and slips into the water. I should be running. Instead I lean over to look for her, a pale wraith in the reeds.
Her smile widens as she drags me into her pond.
ROSIE LANE go fetch your badge of awesomeness at the top while tuesdaytalians speak of your writerly prowess far and wide!
