Welcome back to a #FlashFiction short in honor of the #FridayFictioneers hosted by Madison Woods. Today is short and sweet and meant to entice you for a little quick reading. Thank you for stopping by and I appreciate all your comments. The following story is from the photo prompt and has a cap at 100 words. It's a continuation of a set of stories forthcoming next year from me and Cara Michaels. It picks up from the last bit I wrote a few weeks ago at the bottom of the post. This bit is entitled, "Archaeological Lights".
Bethany tied Killian to a maple at the edge of the clearing and surveyed the site. The archaeologists had tied bright pink flagging to posts and driven them into the ground in a grid pattern. Golden evening sunshine slanted through the trees, painting black shadows beneath the ancient stones set in a rough hexagon.
She ducked under the flagging and she swore her rage actually sparkled in the air. She didn’t realize anything was wrong until the glittering light coalesced and flowed along the grooved lines on the floor from each corner of the dig, engulfing her in its radiance.
Thank you for stopping by and I hope the week has ended well for you. Happy weekend and happy reading! :)
