Darkness Rises – a Round Robin Writing Snippet

On April 4th, 2018 the Ink Slingers Guild (ISG) had some round-robin writing fun! We each wrote a sentence or two and then passed the paper to the next person who added to it and passed it along to the next person and on down the line. Here is one of several mini-stories created this way.  We hope you are as entertained as we!


“Darkness Rises”

The sunset cast rays of red upon the hallowed ground. Standing with those rays was a tall, thin figure emanating malice. Jane stood fast, the pendant clutched in her hand repelling the chill and the darkness as she faced the demon from her dreams. A sly smile played across his face as he withdrew the soul gem from his fur-covered stomach. Jane muttered her incantations softly as she held out her pendant with one hand and drew the appropriate symbols with the other, and the demon’s laugh was the last thing she heard.
