White Out

Sinead and Moonsprite began to climb the shallow steps. All they could see around them were the tall hedges on either side and a bright patch of clear sky in the far distance, where the endless steps were leading them.

The air grew increasing chilly. Frills of frost appeared on the hedges and visible tendrils of breath spilled from Moonsprite’s nostrils. Flakes of snow began to fall. Sinead shivered and drew her cloak around her.

On they climbed through the ever-thickening snow. Sinead placed her hand on the hilt of her sword. This time Moonsprite sent no calming message to her, as she had back in the Garden. Sinead placed her other hand on Moonsprite’s neck, urging her to stop. The snow-white unicorn halted, stamping her hooves on the icy stone, while Sinead opened the saddlebag. She took out the Prophesy Book and opened it.

Every single page was blank.

  1. I love how Sinead and Moonsprite can communicate without words. I am concerned about a whiteout AND blank pages in the prophecy book. Are they to find their own way..again, together? At least they can work this out as a team. The mystery continues Chris.

  2. Since I’ve never read your previous chapters, I was surprised one of the characters was a unicorn. I was wondering why the name was so weird, but in today’s world… *shrug*

    The last line definitely makes the reader excited for the future.

    I like how you’re continuing the story bite by bite.
