#100WCGU – Wk51 – Prompt: …the line was drawn… – 104 words – “Isabeau”

24 Jul

The elders gathered the clan together, “Kinfolk, the line was drawn on the Field of Time. Who will shape the future?”

“I choose,” a small voice was heard.

The folk separated to show the owner of the voice.

“Isabeau, no! You’re too young,” her frightened mother warned.

An elder scolded, “All in the clan may choose. Step forward and cross the line.”

Isabeau crossed and vanished.

A great light from the heavens lighted the sky of a blue planet. The light struck with great force. The prophecy was fulfilled. The Age of Dinosaurs had to end to make way for those who would come.

    Really imaginative take on the prompt! So Isabeau was the first ‘man’ or woman I should say!

      Thanks for the comment.

      Isabeau could have been but I was thinking more of personified meteors. 🙂

    I was intrigued when I saw the title and it did not disappoint. What a great setting and something so very different. Many thanks for joining 100wcgu.

      I looked for a more unusual name for a different type of story. 🙂

      Thanks for the comment.

      The fantasy could have had more leading up to the entry or perhaps what follows. 104 words does compact events. 🙂
