Hunting on Wild Horse Beach #100Words for #FridayFictioneers

Good morning! Today's #FlashFiction snipped for the #FridayFictioneers is below. I hope you'll stop by and read the interview with Cara Michaels, as well. If you become a follower of the blog and comment on it, you will be entered to win a copy of her upcoming release!

So with no other ado, 100 words with this morning's prompt of the following photo:

I followed the trail of feathers like breadcrumbs. Hitting the cobblestoned beach, I momentarily lost the path, but one bedraggled feather caught between the wet rocks gave my quarry away.

Not this time. You’re mine.

I’d been tracking the Pegasus herd for two days straight and was a little punchy, but I knew this beach was a box canyon and this Pegasus was molting.

I found her, legs braced with her back to the rocky cliff, her head up, ears back, and challenge in her eyes.

I hefted my rope, grinning at her defiant snort. “Let’s dance, you and me!”

There you have it! I hope you enjoyed and thanks for stopping by. Be sure to tune in on Sunday for my Six Sentence Sunday snippet and Cara's interview below. Happy reading!


  1. A Pegasus! Perfect. Loved the imagery! I could feel her spirit with your words, ". . . legs braced with her back to the rocky cliff, her head up, ears back, and challenge in her eyes."

  2. Ohh a Pegasus! Wonderful. Really like the imagery.

  3. Siobahn,

    Loved the Pegasus hunt. Very broad reach from just a feather. Cool.



  4. I love your imagination! I have never really given the Pegasus much thought and that it would have feathers. Great idea and use of the prompt!!
