RISFWC #2

Part 1   Part 2

Part 3:

“I’m so sorry I’ve been away,” Amaleia sobbed into the creatures neck. “Everything just gets so different when you grow up.”

The horse snorted in comfort and began to lead her away from the pool. She followed with her hand on his back walking silently through the caves. The lantern she brought cast a warm light on the walls and made the shadows sway as it dangled by her side.

At first she merely enjoyed the presence of her friend as they walked in silence. But soon she found that they were in an unfamiliar part of the cave. Amaleia had thought that they had explored every nook and cranny of the expansive tunnels together. She slowed with caution, but the red horse continued its steadfast pace.

The Lost Arey Journals


I found a treasure today!  While backing up some files I found a writing project from eight years ago that I had completely forgotten about.  For seven months I wrote a blog on myspace.com from the perspective of a character lost in a strange world.  It’s funny that I forgot about what I had written, but I’ve still been developing the world and potential plot aspects over the years.  Here is an excerpt:

I have to get out, but I’ve gone from wandering through what I thought were catacombs, to running for my life, to being finally being captured and sealed in this tiny cavern to die.
