Every Tuesday I post a writing prompt and my response. It gives me a chance to exercise my writing muscles outside of my WIP, and hopefully inspire you to write. So enjoy my flash fiction piece and post your own in the comments!
A jewel-encrusted box is found in an ancient abandoned temple. Describe the box, what is in the box, and the temple.
The small rectangular box fit in the palm of Anya's hand. Here eyes took in the rows and rows of sapphires winking in the faint light. In the sea of blue stones, to rubies like eyes looked back at her.
A dark whisper sounded in Anya's ears. "Open, open, open," it repeated over and over.
Her hand moved toward the lid.
Then the whisper and the box were gone. Anya blinked and looked up to see Brynner watching her.
"Don't open the box."
