5 min Writing Prompt "Drive" #freewrite Serial Story ACT THREE Chapter Three
They find the first of the three sisters at the break for the Eramosa, sitting cross legged on a patch of grass next to the river. As they approach her she looks up at them with an expression of depraved indifference.
"You should get out and drive," She hisses at them, "Don't you know that this is a highway, no river at all?"
She pulls back her hood to reveal the shorn stumps where her horns used to be. Simon recoils from the edge of the boat, but beside him the snake only laughs a sultry whisper.
"They are eating their own now…"
As they pass the woman, Simon looks on upriver, casting his mind to what awaits them. Here the surrounding woods have grown thicker, but he knows that before long these woods will give way to scrub grass, followed by vast stretches of desert. Desert and fire.
"Pave your way!" Cackles the abandoned sister, her voice lost in echoes across the river's softly undulating surface.
