Wonhundred Word Wednesday--I stared at the flames that had...

It's Wednesday again! Which is quickly becoming my favorite day of the week :) This week's prompt was super fun, since, if you've read my books you realize I have a thing for fire (ironic, since I'm afraid of it in real life). So! Here it is:

Here's my take:

I stared at the flames that had just tried to swallow me whole. They’d leaped right out of the fire place and chased me around the room, slowly growing smaller until they were just little now—and they looked distinctly people-like.
They stared back at me, sparks dripping from their mouths and scalding the rugs.
“So…yeah. You should probably get back in the fireplace before you, like, extinguish or something.”
“We’ll die either way.”
“Then what’s with the chasing?” I asked.
They grinned, flames leaping from their heads. “We’re taking you with us.”


  1. Those little things are perfectly creepy! Love the imagery :)

  2. I LOVED this one. I wasn't expecting the flames to turn into little creatures. Hope she gets away! I'd freak out if that happened to me.

  3. I imagine them as super cute creatures, which makes this all the more disturbing. I love it a lot ^_^
