A-to-Z Challenge: Emerald

#Haibun – Emerald Castle

Shrunken by a type of a ray gun developed by a scientist who wanted to sabotage her, Sylvia decides to embark on a quest to Emerald City where she has heard tales of a wizard who can undo the damage. Panting from the aftermath of a courageous battle with a blood-sucking flea who wanted to have her for breakfast, she arrives at the translucent doorstep falling to her knees in gratitude. She apprehensively knocks on the door feeling the ice-cold surface as the vibrations of her knock echo in the chambers ahead. A butler with an unperturbed expression opens the door and with a flourish, he bows deeply before Sylvia and welcomes her inside the castle. Must persist on this journey with hope that justice will be served otherwise we grow accustomed to darkness!

A sparkling jewel
Gleamed in the lush, green forest
In all its splendor

Hello everyone! I'm a technical writer by day, creative writer by night. I have a wild imagination yearning for more in life. I'm fascinated by many subjects that have developed into a sort of mental and physical wanderlust that ultimately leads me to experience a variety of cultural shocks. Welcome to my journey and looking forward to reading your blogs!

  1. Wonderful! Excellent job on combining prompts.
    Very descriptive writing. “Battle with a blood sucking flea” ?! Now that has me curious!! Reena is spot on, lol. You do leave a question mark. You might have to write another installment of this story 🙂
