Sacha’s prompts are always good fun, and this week she’s challenged us to write about ‘The girl in the black hood.’ 52 words, no more, no less. For some reason this one came to me fairly quickly…
She gritted her teeth, dug her heels in and pulled, the heavy load cutting into her cold fingers. Behind her a trail of blood and fur stained the snow.
Forget about little red riding hood. This girl’s hood was black, and this time the wolf was the hunted, rather than the hunter.
Fancy giving the prompt a try? Head over to Sacha’s blog for more details.

Excellent, Helen. Very entertaining!
Thanks, Diana! Glad you enjoyed it and hope you’re well 🙂 I imagine spring is in bloom in that fairytale garden of yours…
We have a few daffodils, but we tend to lag the behind the “valley.” Hopefully soon! Enjoy your day 🙂
