My First Visual Dare: Carissa's Path

A neat blog called Anonymous Legacy has a Visual Dare every Wednesday for its readers.

Readers are given a photo prompt, then are challenged to writing a 100 word piece based on the photo shown. This week's prompt is a triple dare where three photos (shown below) are used for the challenge. Here is my shot at the hundred word challenge.

If evil was on a quest for adventure, then this overwhelming consumption of her usual good-hearted nature fulfilled that mission.

Lost in this reeling shroud of mist, Carissa gripped the dagger tightly, remembering the trail of blood left behind by this elusive invasion of conscience.

Beyond the mist, a high colossal building perched on a hill, the same place that lived in the stories told by loved ones to discourage bad behavior.

A laughing inner voice told her redemption would be coming along the way as she started up the spiraling stairs. Screams followed and she was now eternally doomed.


  1. Ahhh....why does Pandora's Box comes to mind? So much mystery and intrigue in 100 words - well done! And with all three photo prompts, too! Lovely work. :)

    1. I appreciate the comment. Thank you for for dropping by and allowing me to participate. I'm glad you like the story.

      First time I have written a story under a hundred words. Eagerly looking forward to the next prompt, have a wonderful evening. =-)

  2. Such strong imagery, each sentence seems to have its own fade out to mystery and foreboding

  3. This is really good. I loved the suspense
