VisDare 9: Alone?

I was not saitisfied with last week's post for Celesta's Cave, so I ended up scrapping it altogether from the series. I feel much better now that the subway kitty has scurried off (maybe its my cat phobia..who knows?) and replaced by another photo prompt from Angela Goff's Visdare challenge found HERE.

The title of this series has changed from "Little Liar" to Maddy's Mystic World to better suit the events unfolding along the way.

So now, I bring you the newly improved chapter of "Maddy's Mystic World" titled "Celesta's Cave".

Enjoy and have a great day.

Maddy's Mystic World #4:
Celesta's Cave


Maddy began suspecting that she was all alone in the cave until she saw the woman on her laurels, her fingertips rolling gently over the water's surface.

Maddy took a few careful steps forward before Celesta's voice echoed. "What do you want?"

Maddy froze and swallowed a nervous tension in her throat. "I was told you can help me."

"Is that so?" Celesta rose slowly and whirled, her half-scarred face revealed.

Maddy's gaze shifted, catching a glimpse of the conjured image on the water's surface: a young man sat alone reading, oblivious to rising waters.

Celesta caught Maddy's curious eyes. With a sleight of hand, the image vanished. She returned her attention back to Maddy with a measuring look. "You think you're brave enough for the trials?"


"There are many trials," Celesta said sternly, looming over Maddy with hardened eyes. "And no one has ever passed the first!"
