Exercise #455: Brainstorm
Posted 2/10/12

Something from my niece to get your muse working. Read the following and use it as the springboard for your SUB.

“There is no key, there is no lock, and it’s not stolen. Unknown to humans in the darkness it is sullen, no walls to break, no chamber to seek, for it is known to no one, but to the keeper who bears it. No glint it casts, no locket it bears, no emblem, for it is worthless. Still it is sealed forever in a darkness, never to be found and meant to be forgotten.

Puddles of memories, do not dare make a ripple, stealth is the game for you are being hunted.”

(copyright 2012 Chrissy Bare)
