FSF: The Charmer's Wrath

It's time once again for Five Sentence Fiction!  This week's prompt as decreed by Lillie is CHARMED.

For those who have not read previous installments of my FSF serial, you can find the entire story to date on this PAGE.

Chapter 33: The Charmer’s Wrath

Ylana’s hands and feet seemed oddly detached from her body as she stood above the bed inside the shaman’s tent.  Nara had lost consciousness by the time she arrived, and her bandaged face and arms hinted at just how severe this accident was, though she didn’t yet know the details.

“Do you know what happened to her?” Ylana asked, the desperation she felt leaking into every word.

The shaman, a tiny tangerine-skinned man who only stood as high as Ylana’s waist, replied, “She accidentally got in the way of the Charmer’s Wrath, and it marked her as a result.  The Wrath wasn’t even meant for her, but she’ll have to pay the steepest of prices all the same.”

  1. I sometimes wonder if I got in the way of a charmer's wrath on the way into this life!

  2. I was just with a shaman. Very cool. Love your first sentence!

  3. I am so intrigued by this story!
