Summary: The forest is dangerous, even for someone like her. 100 words. For this week's visual prompt at drabblefix, which I fully understand was intended to make me think PURGATORY, but alas. :D


The forest is dangerous, even for someone like her. Shadows lurk in every direction, dark specters following her wherever she runs; trees seem to come to life, branches twisting and clawing at her, ripping her skirts and cutting her face.

The men behind her are afraid - she can smell their fear - but they don’t stop. She hears their ragged breathing, the strain of a bowstring before the arrow is released. She ducks and looks up to the sky, closing her eyes against the unearthly glow of the moon.

She takes off her cloak and prays the gods will forgive her.
