Story Challenge

Josie Gilbert’s response to the challenge to write a story in UNDER one hundred works comes in the form of  ‘Cairngorms.’


Tonight, would be a night of firsts – her first time glamping and her first visit to the Cairngorms. It was February and already dark when she arrived. She unpacked, cooked a meal, and then stepped outside into the cold night air, cradling a mug of hot chocolate.

A fox barked in the distance, but otherwise – silence. Gazing up she saw a myriad of stars, sparkling in an inky, blue-black sky. A flicker of green appeared on the horizon and gradually grew. The Northern Lights, or Merrie Dancers, dancing across the heavens. Another first.

What a first. To see the Northern Lights, Josie, is on my to-do list.
