Microfiction: Our Hero

You are our hero, little kid.

We need you to save us. It is the only way. I know that you are scared, but you need to be brave for all of us. You are the only one we can trust to stand your ground when the monster comes. You will sit tight in your cage as it approaches you. And then when it shows itself, we get to finish it off with our magic.

You will be our greatest hero, by becoming a sacrifice.

Finish The Story Project: Introduction

Like great adventures of the old, a bunch of heroes have banded together to complete a certain quest. And this time it is not for the destruction of the one ring, or stopping the invading Chitauri, no. This time the heroes have set the goal of creating good reading content, to save their world through their writing.
