Today’s word is “survive.” Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

FOWC with Fandango — Survive

Evangeline’s Will to Survive

Evil ruled this beautiful forest far too long, it’s time to unmask
She couldn’t resist entering the haunted forest, it is too tempting
Evangeline, although quite young believes she is ready for the task
The rumors fly every Hallows eve but no one dares preempting

Evangeline knows in her heart that she will not be alone
Ghosts of other young victims await her, praying she is the one
There is a mysterious power compelling her into the unknown
Hoping she will be strong enough to battle John Donne

Lurking in the darkness beside the tree are his henchmen
A brief shimmer of fairy lights twinkles all around her
Watching her guarded approach to the mysterious glen
Soon the predicted battle of good and evil will occur

Legends have foretold a beautiful witch would be the one
The village prays she is able to save their weary souls
Henchmen work fiercely for their evil master John Donne
No one saw this twist, it was not written in the scrolls

Evangeline stood in the glen calmly facing him
John entered the light shocked by her appearance
She spoke not word, but kissed him lightly on a whim
He raised his hand not allowing any interference.

John sighed, he could not remember his last kiss
Fairies fluttering and twinkling happily around her
The feel was too delightful to simply dismiss
Battle or kiss, let’s try that again before I concur©
