This bit o’ fiction was in response to Warmup Wednesday. We were to write a story or scene of exactly 100 words inspired by the photo prompt. The challenge was to give the protagonist a physical disability of some kind. This prompt was just for fun. No judging or winners. Good practice. I fully intent to enter an actual event soon.
Laney’s head buzzed.
She couldn’t remember where she was.
Everything was dark. Although, it was always dark for Laney, but her other senses were “darkened” as well.
The buzzing was so loud she couldn’t hear anything. Her nose was clogged with something…dirt.
She had been running then, nothing.
She got up, light headed, and felt around. A hole. She was in a hole. She couldn’t feel the top.
No one answered.
She didn’t remember anything.
Where am I?
The buzzing got louder.
Laney hesitated, scared of the unknown.
She had to get out. So she climbed.
