A Story by Daly

Flash Fiction (Fantasy)




An astonishing sight stood by the bank of the river. Mary couldn't believe it, but she remained still, refraining herself from disturbing the tranquil one-horned horse. Hiding among the trees and bushes, she watched as the mythical creature lapped her tongue on the crystal clear water. Then a sudden noise of movement and twigs snapping; the peaceful beast glanced up and alarmingly whinnied. Mary held her breath, but the one-horned horse had already assumed the presence of an intruder and galloped into the ominous forest. Everything turned quiet for true beauty vanished before Mary's innocent eyes.

Very well done. I liked how the whole story was told in just a small paragraph. We don't need pages to understand the world, or the character(s). (is the unicorn a character, or a part of the setting>)

I like the descriptions you made on the unicorn. Good job.

Oh the sweet innocent meets purity...I love the unicorn. I enjoyed this "flash" of yours--it left me wanting to read more. I hope you continue with it!
