Story Challenge – A story in under 100 words

Colin Ward rises to the writing challenge again with his story Angel written in under one hundred words. Enjoy.


I saw my angel.

She stood just one hundred yards from me. Her hair glistened in the moonlight as it clung to her porcelain face, soaking with the misty rain.

There was a darkness in her eyes which beckoned me towards her, even though she made no call. I moved closer, careful to roll my steps as if any sound would jolt and snatch her away. Delicate.

I crept with the breeze. She blinked once in slow motion. And I knew. She turned, spread her wings and took flight. Down, down to the rocks below.

My angel lost.
